Gatwick Airport appoints new health and safety director

Gatwick Airport has appointed former environment, health and safety head at Centrica to new role.

Lesley Hall joined the airport’s executive management board at the beginning of the year and will work to develop the “performance and culture” of environment, health and safety at Britain’s second largest airport.

She has joined Gatwick from Centrica, where she was head of environment, health and safety for the firm’s Merchant Power business, which included power stations, offshore wind farms and new energy projects.

Previously, she has also held roles with the Brett Group, BP Gas and as an inspector with the Health and Safety Executive.

Development Director also appointed

The UK’s second largest airport has also announced that Bronwen Jones has been promoted to the role of development director.

Ms Jones was previously head of development at Gatwick and has played a central role in some of the airport’s largest transformational programmes, including the North Terminal development programme.

A word from Gatwick Airport’s CEO

“I am delighted Lesley Hall and Bronwen Jones have joined Gatwick’s executive team and I look forward to the breadth of experience they will both bring to their roles,” said Gatwick Airport’s chief executive officer, Stewart Wingate.

“These appointments demonstrate Gatwick’s on-going commitment to providing our passengers with the very best airport facilities and service possible.”

Last year, Laura Cleaver from HSE Recruitment spoke to Gatwick Airport’s previous environment, heath and safety director, Steve Howells for SHP about the airport’s Environmental Health and Safety team.

The airport serves 45 million passengers a year and has 2,700 direct employees, 24,000 indirect employees, commercial property, air traffic control, a logistics function, a huge team of security officers and other airside operations.
