AIRPORT ANNOUNCES NEW COMMERCIAL DIRECTOR

Andy Foulds


‘A success story waiting to happen’—-that’s the message from Durham Tees Valley Airport’s new Commercial Director whose appointment has been announced today. Andy Foulds, who has over 20 years’ experience in the transport industry, has joined the airport from the Port of Tyne Authority where he has been Commercial Director for the past two years, playing a key role in its growth and expansion plans. Previously Andy spent 18 years working across four continents in key roles with the international APMoller-Maersk shipping group, including spells in Singapore, South Africa and the United States. His appointment was welcomed today by Durham Tees Valley Airport Chairman Robert Hough as ‘proof positive of our faith that, with the right leadership and the right support, Durham Tees Valley can move forward and make a real contribution to the area’s economic growth’ Andy says that one of his main tasks will be to strengthen links with local business and news of his appointment comes on the day that the airport was welcoming many companies for the North East launch of UK Trade and Industry’s Export Week. He explains “I will be leaving no stone unturned in seeking to maximise the opportunities for attracting new business, whether it be on the aviation side or in the wider development of the overall site. “Of course, we all recognise that, in common with many other regional airports, Durham Tees Valley Airport has gone through a difficult time in recent years but I would not have joined the company if I did not think it could be brought back to health.” Added Robert Hough “Andy’s appointment is a significant step forward and underlines our commitment to Durham Tees Valley Airport. He brings a wealth of experience in the transport industry and an impressive track record. “He recognises that a key challenge is ensuring that we work with partners to explore how we can maximise the potential for attracting the new business which is so important to ensuring the long-term viability of the airport.”
