Appointment Details

Airport Coordination Limited

Job Title: Independent Chair

Job Reference:HAAAIC

Closing Date: Tuesday 23 Jul 2019



Airport Coordination Limited (ACL) was formed in 1992 and is now the world’s largest and leading independent airport coordination organisation, working with 38 airports across the world and coordinating over 3.8 million flights every year. ACL plays a critical and independent role in the UK aviation industry, allocating airport slots and policing their use, with the ability to sanction airlines, whilst also playing a significant role in wider industry policy development.

Appointed as the organisation’s first Independent Chair in 2013, Jeff Halliwell will step down having completed the maximum number of terms. As a result, the Board is looking for an experienced individual to continue the highest calibre of leadership and stewardship of the board.

The successful candidate will be comfortable leading the Board of a mature and complex business, sitting at the heart of a dynamic and changing industry of considerable scale. S/he will bring considerable gravitas, commercial nous and the intellectual ability to gain the confidence of board members and international industry stakeholders. Candidates will be able to navigate the complexity of the aviation sector, and engage effectively with public and private sector stakeholders. Able to navigate divergence and differing views at board-level, candidates will likely bring a combination of commercial and public / regulatory sector experience as well as a demonstrable track record at board and chair-level.

Candidates should be free from potential conflicts of interest, and for this reason first-hand experience of the aviation industry is not deemed essential.

Saxton Bampfylde Ltd is acting as an employment agency advisor to ACL on this appointment. For further information about this role, including details about how to apply, please visit using reference HAAAIC. Applications for the role should be received by noon on Tuesday 23 July.
