Tony Hallwood is to step down from his role as Aviation Development Director after nine years at Leeds Bradford Airport.
He’ll quit at the end of June to move back to Manchester, where he’ll start to take an active role in his wife’s business Marketing Profile.
He said: “I am immensely proud of my achievements at LBA in driving record passenger growth from 2.6 to 3.6m, and delivering a string of major route development successes for the Leeds City Region and Yorkshire.
“Securing new based capacity from Ryanair and Monarch, the reintroduction of BA and Aer Lingus alongside Jet2.com’s and Flybe’s growth has helped ensure the continued success of LBA.
“During my time at the airport I have also enjoyed developing and strengthening relationships through my PR role across the media and regional stakeholders.
“I look forward to seeing the ongoing success of LBA under David Laws’ leadership, and I wish the airport team ‘all the best’ for the future.”
