Emirates has appointed Richard Jewsbury as the new divisional vice president of the UK from 1 April 2018. He will take over from Laurie Berryman, who retires from the airline on 31 March.

In his role Jewsbury will oversee Emirates’ entire sales and service functions across its commercial, customer and cargo operations in the market. He will report directly to Hubert Frach, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations West.

“We thank Laurie for his amazing contribution and commitment to our business, and wish him the very best for his retirement. We also welcome Richard to the UK team, where his experience from across various functions in the airline will stand him in good stead as we continue to grow our business in the market. We wish him every success in the UK,” said Hubert.

Jewsbury said: “To lead Emirates in one of our biggest and most important markets is an exciting opportunity, and my immediate priority will be to ensure the successful launch of our new service between Dubai and Stansted in June. I’m looking forward to working with our local teams in London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester and Newcastle, to build on the successes achieved to date”.
