Gatwick senior management changes to support airport investment

A series of senior management changes have been made at Gatwick following plans to spend £240 million on developments over the next financial year.

Chris Woodroofe has been promoted to chief operating officer to drive the airport’s growth and performance through infrastructure, technology and efficiency improvements. Currently head of passenger operations, he has spent more than ten years at Gatwick in a variety of roles.

Existing chief operating officer Scott Stanley becomes chief development officer. Ray Melee has been appointed chief construction officer to ensure the timely and cost effective delivery of Gatwick’s £1.2 billion overall capital investment programme.

CEO Stewart Wingate said: “As we enter the latest chapter of our exciting plans for the future, Chris will be a fantastic new addition to Gatwick’s executive team and brings a unique breadth of experience gained over ten years at the airport. Scott Stanley and Ray Melee’s new roles reflect the challenges that Gatwick’s increased capital investment programme will bring.

“We announced just yesterday that we will make our largest annual investment in development projects at the airport this year which brings the total investment to £2.5 billion. This will be crucial in helping us to serve our growing passenger numbers.

“Today’s appointments demonstrate Gatwick’s ongoing commitment to develop and grow and provide our passengers with the very best airport facilities and service possible.”
