London City chief executive Declan Collier is stepping down, the airport has announced.
He will remain in the position until a successor is found.
Collier has been CEO of London City since March 2012 and has overseen significant growth at the airport and the securing of planning permission for a £350 million infrastructure development.
“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,” said London City chairman Terry Morgan. “The airport has delivered significant growth in passenger numbers and earnings which in turn has stimulated economic activity across the local and London economy.”
Collier added: “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.”
