BAA capital director Steve Morgan has stepped down to be replaced by current commercial director John Holland-Kaye.
He leaves on 1 November. Staff were told of the move this morning.
Morgan’s focus has been on improving the customer experience – “making every journey better” - but was widely known in the industry for his anti-Egan views. He has decided to move on to the next stage in his career.
Holland-Kaye now takes on responsibility for capital projects delivery at Heathrow, Glasgow, Eastliegh and Aberdeen airports. This includes the £2.5bn spend at Heathrow T2 and looking ahead to spening another £952M in 2013 and then a possible £3bn-plus spend over the next five year regulatory period.
“We’re spending £1billion a year on capital investment to transform Heathrow into a hub airport that Britain can be proud of,” said Holland-Kaye. “We have improved significantly over the last few years, but there is more to be done; We have many changes planned which will improve passenger experience at Heathrow, the biggest of which is Terminal 2, which will open in 2014. I am looking forward to leading our team to make it happen. “
Holland-Kaye was appointed commercial director in May 2009. He was previously divisional CEO with Taylor Wimpey, having held a number of positions within the company including operations director of Taylor Woodrow Developments and commercial director of Taylor Woodrow.
