Morgan steps up as chairman at London City Airport

After more than ten years, Roy Griffins is to retire as chairman of London City Airport. 

Griffins has overseen a period of outstanding growth at the airport and leaves the business in excellent shape to fulfil its potential.

Under his guidance, London City has achieved remarkable safe and sustainable growth, attained record passenger levels over successive years, weathered shocks to the global aviation market, and transitioned to new ownership.

Terry Morgan joins the London City Airport board in his place and will take over as its new chairman.

Morgan is currently a non-executive chairman of Crossrail and Ricardo and former executive in the UK infrastructure and defence space. 

He was the chief executive of Tube Lines from 2002-2009 and managing director of Land Rover vehicles in the early 1990s.

Morgan said: “I am delighted to be taking on this role at such an exciting period at London City Airport with the City Airport Development Programme having been granted formal planning permission in 2016.”

David Fison also joined the London City Airport board in January 2017 as an independent non-executive director bringing along with him extensive experience with delivery of large capex projects and technical expertise.

Fison is currently non-executive chairman of Pontoon Solutions and was the chief executive of Skanska UK from 1993 to 2009 and managing director of Balfour Beatty in the 1990s.
