Manchester Airport Group chief commercial officer Ken O'Toole has been named as managing director of Manchester airport.
He takes over from Andrew Cowan, who has overseen operations at the airport for two years as part of his role as MAG chief operating officer.
Cowan will now take on the new role of chief strategy officer for the group with responsibility for leading key strategic initiatives.
MAG chief executive, Charlie Cornish, said: "MAG has made remarkable progress over the past four years, and is now a fast growing airport services group with enormously strong prospects. Both Ken and Andrew have played key roles in that transformation process.
“Thanks to Andrew's leadership, Manchester airport is enjoying a period of sustained growth and Ken will ensure that we maintain a sharp focus on providing passengers and airlines with the level of service that is rightly expected of us, while at the same time expanding the range of routes available from the airport.
“These appointments will enable the airport to continue to flourish and help drive economic growth across the North, and support the development of the group as a leading airport services company.”
O'Toole added: “As the region’s global gateway, we can support the needs of the 22 million people that live within two hours of the airport and I'm looking forward to delivering further improvements to the services we offer, both in terms of the quality of our facilities and the range of destinations available from the region.”
Cowan said: "As MAG continues to grow, it will become increasingly important that we capitalise on our position as a major airports group. We’ve already made big strides in this regard but there is still enormous potential for us to develop and grow the group, generating further value across all our activities."
