Posted 5 October 2018 · Add Comment

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced that Karen Clayton will join IATA as the Association’s Corporate Secretary effective April 2019.

 

Clayton comes to IATA from Air New Zealand where she has held the role of General Counsel and Company Secretary since 2016.

As Corporate Secretary, Clayton will ensure the integrity of IATA’s governance framework, including management of the Association’s Board of Governors and its various committees. The IATA Board of Governors is elected by the Association’s 290-strong membership and consists of CEOs from 31 airlines and IATA’s Director General and CEO.

As a member of IATA’s Strategic Leadership Team, Clayton will also support the Director General and CEO with advice and input on IATA’s strategic plans and industry initiatives.

Clayton will take over IATA’s Corporate Secretary role from Paul Steele who is currently IATA’s Corporate Secretary and Senior Vice President for Member and External Relations. When Clayton joins IATA in April 2019, Steele will focus on strengthening IATA’s advocacy activities in his continued role as Senior Vice President for Member and External Relations.

“Karen brings with her a wealth of experience that will ensure the continued effective management of IATA’s governance processes. Moreover, her industry expertise, leadership on diversity and inclusion, and strategic boardroom experience will contribute to IATA’s overall success in fulfilling its mission to represent, lead and serve the global airline industry,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO.

“In my time at Air New Zealand, I have experienced the importance of IATA’s global standards in driving innovation and making international air connectivity possible. By joining the IATA team next year I look forward to contributing to the value that IATA creates and supporting the needs of its members,” said Clayton.
