Join us in a webinar on 14 Sep 20 at 1600 hours (BST) with Mr Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive Officer, Edinburgh Airport. Gordon will discuss the challenges of running an international airport and the added complexities of dealing with COVID 19 within the context of a fast changing aviation industry.
Gordon Dewar took up the post of Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport in July 2012. Rebranding the airport as the place where ‘Scotland meets the world’, Dewar has overseen significant capital investment in capacity, productivity improvements and customer service enhancements that have been recognised through airport and wider business awards in Scotland, the UK and internationally. Dewar spent four years with BAA, from 2007 to 2010, running Glasgow and Edinburgh Airports through periods of extensive investments in terminal capacity and passenger growth. He then spent two years as Chief Executive at Bahrain International Airport, creating an independent and profitable business. Dewar has held a number of senior positions with leading transport operators, including commercial, general management and business development roles. Prior to this, he spent 10 years in Transport Consultancy. Dewar is a Board Member of the Scottish Police Authority and the Scottish Tourism Alliance. He is thus extremely well qualified to talk to the Institute about emetging trends in the airline industry and the challenges of being an international airport CEO.
