Recently retired easyJet Chief Executive Ray Webster is entering the Hall of Fame at the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA). He is receiving the ‘Legends Award’ at the second Annual Asia Pacific and Middle East Outlook Summit in Kuala Lumpur.
Ray Webster has been selected as the recipient of The CAPA Aviation Hall of Fame of the Year - Legends Award. This award honours strategic leadership, innovation and influence in the aviation industry. As CEO for 10 years of a company that has changed the way people think about travel, and now the inaugural inductee to the CAPA Hall of Fame, Ray Webster, has built an airline that carries 30 million passengers a year. A former Air New Zealand executive for 28 years, Ray has left easyJet in a strong position, last month unveiling a better than expected rise in profits and a strong outlook for 2006.
Ray Webster commented: “I am honoured to be presented with such an award, however I must stress that the success of easyJet is the result of a passionate, dedicated and enthusiastic team that I am very proud to have been a part of.”
