New Chief Executive for Hamilton Airport Announced

Acting Chief Executive for Hamilton Airport, Mark Morgan, has been appointed to the role permanently.

For the past three months, Mr Morgan has assumed the acting Chief Executive role for Hamilton Airport while the recruitment process for a permanent Chief Executive was underway.

Hamilton Airport Chairman, John Spencer, said the Board was very pleased with Mr Morgan’s appointment and believed his experience and skills were a very appropriate fit with the airport business.

“Mr Morgan’s wide range of industry backgrounds, coupled with private company and multi-national experience, will prove beneficial for the company going forward,” he said.

Mr Morgan was previously the Chief Executive of Mintglass Limited for two years following two years as COO and CEO of the Airpro Group. In addition, Mr Morgan held senior executive leadership roles across a number of other industry sectors, including tourism and construction.

Mr Spencer stated Mr Morgan’s exposure to all facets of NZ business had served him well over the last three months, enabling the successful implementation of effective strategies and financial results.

“With Mr Morgan’s appointment to the permanent role of Chief Executive we are confident that the momentum he has created will ensure that the business delivers on its key objectives for this financial year and beyond,” he said.
Mr Morgan said he was looking forward to continuing with the airport company.

“With a great team in place and several key projects underway including the new Air New Zealand Koru Lounge there are some great opportunities and developments ahead, and I am excited to be part of it,” he said.

Mr Morgan currently lives in Auckland and has two adult children, but he and his wife will be permanently relocating to the Waikato in the New Year.
