Heathrow executive promoted
Provan installed as Scottish airports CEO
New chief: Derek Provan succeeds Amanda McMillan
Derek Provan has been appointed chief executive of the company running Glasgow, Aberdeen and Southampton airports, succeeding Amanda McMillan who is leaving to relocate to Australia.
Mr Provan becomes chief executive of AGS and managing director of Glasgow Airport in April. He is currently interim chief operating officer at London Heathrow.
He joined Heathrow in 2013, having spent three years as managing director of Aberdeen International Airport.
Mr Provan began his aviation career in 1998 at Glasgow Airport, where he went on to hold a series of senior roles, including airfield operations manager, head of security and terminal operations and customer services director.
He said: “Very few people are afforded the opportunity to lead the airport at which they started their career.
“Glasgow has enjoyed remarkable success in recent years and starts 2018 having recorded its busiest year on record.
“I’m excited at the prospect of returning home to build on everything that has been achieved to date.”
