An international recruitment firm has been
appointed to undertake a search for a new CEO, and Declan will be
assisting the company in finding a successor.
London City Airport Chairman, Sir Terry Morgan
said, "On behalf of the Board I want to pay tribute to the
tremendous contribution that Declan has made to London City
Airport. Declan has been Chief Executive of London City Airport
since March 2012 - a time that has seen significant growth at the
airport, the successful sale of the business to a consortium of
international investors and the securing of planning permission
for a £350m development of the airport infrastructure."
"Under Declan's leadership, London City Airport has developed
strong and wide ranging relationships across the aviation sector,
with all levels of government- nationally, in London, and locally-
and with our local communities. The airport has delivered
significant growth in passenger numbers and earnings which in turn
has stimulated economic activity across the local and London
economy," Sir Terry added.
Mr Collier said, "It has been a privilege and a
pleasure to have been part of the airport's success story for more
than five years. London City Airport is a great business and well
placed to take advantage of future growth and new aircraft
technologies as we embark on our City Airport Development
Programme. We have a dedicated and talented team working at LCY
and I’m very proud of the work we’ve done to build a successful
and sustainable business focused on our customers and community. However, as we embark on the next phase of the airport’s
development I feel it is the right time to transition to new
leadership and I look forward to assisting the Chairman to secure
my successor and continuing to work with the leadership team until
a new CEO starts."
