And finally…Loganair FD makes himself redundant

The finance director of Loganair has made himself redundant after launching a cost-cutting drive at the Scottish airline.

David Dishon will step down later this week, with group financial controller Beth Mackay taking on his duties in addition to her own after the two roles are merged.

The airline said that Mr Dishon “identified his own position as one that should come under question” as a result of his appraisal of the business.

The move comes just a year after Mr Dishon joined the senior management team at Loganair, having previously worked as finance and commercial director for the Serco-run Caledonian Sleeper rail services.

Before that he was route finance controller in Scotland for Network Rail.

A spokesman for Loganair, which flies to and from airports across the north and north-east of the country, said: “The company went through a significant internal cost-saving drive during the latter part of last year.

“David Dishon identified that his own position was one that should rightly come under question and he himself volunteered to lead the cost-saving drive before then making his own position redundant.”
