Highlands and Islands Airports managing director to step down after 18 Years
Inglis Lyon, managing director of Highlands and Islands Airports (HIAL), has announced plans to step down this summer after 18 years of service.
Chair Lorna Jack, speaking on behalf of the HIAL Board, expressed gratitude for Mr Lyon’s leadership and confirmed that the board “is now focused on recruiting the next person to lead the organisation.”
Mr Lyon said: “I have worked with a fantastic team throughout my time at HIAL. I could not be prouder of my colleagues and their commitment to their communities, particularly during the pandemic when amongst much uncertainty they didn’t miss a beat and lifeline services continued.
“I have been very fortunate to meet and work with superb colleagues across the company, numerous HIAL Board members, government officials and ministers and local community partners.
“However, after 18 years’ service, I’ve reached that time of life when it is time to pass the baton on and give someone the opportunity to hold the keys to what I consider to be the best job in the Highlands and Islands and take HIAL to the next level.”
