easyJet Announces Two Key Appointments

Chris Walton joins as Finance Director and Chief Financial Officer, replacing Nick Manoudakis who has moved to the easyGroup. Formerly a General Manager at Qantas Airways` worldwide head-office in Sydney, Chris has held senior roles at a number of private and quoted companies, including Air New Zealand, Australian Airlines and British Petroleum.

His experience of guiding companies through a flotation will be invaluable as the airline seeks a stock market listing in the near future.

Chris holds a pilot`s licence (Australia and New Zealand), and is married with one child.

Toby Nicol has joined the airline as Public Relations Manager, replacing James Rothnie, the easyGroup director of corporate affairs.

Before joining easyJet, Toby worked as an account director for British Midland`s Public Relations agency, Charles Barker, where he was responsible for every aspect of the day to day management of the airline`s account. Previously, he gained his first experience of the airline industry while working as a journalist with the global airport grouping, Airports Council International.
