CAA appoints Richard Moriarty as CEO

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has named Richard Moriarty as its new chief executive. He will succeed Andrew Haines, whose term is due to expire in summer 2018, and was appointed following a rigorous selection process.

Announcing the appointment, Deirdre Hutton, chair of the CAA, said, “Following a thorough selection process that included a significant number of first-class candidates, I am delighted to be able to announce the appointment of Richard Moriarty as the chief executive designate of the CAA.

“Richard was the standout candidate throughout the process. His leadership qualities were recently further put to the test during the flying program he led following Monarch Airlines entering into administration, where he clearly demonstrated his operational scope and capabilities.

“Richard has had the benefit of working closely with Andrew Haines in two roles at the CAA and has shown that he has an excellent grasp of the wide and diverse issues our organization manages on a daily basis. I know that everyone at the CAA joins me in warmly congratulating Richard on his appointment.”

Moriarty re-joined the CAA in 2016 as group director of consumers and markets and deputy chief executive. Prior to this, he was chief executive at the Legal Services Board, which oversees the legal profession in England and Wales.

He said, “I am honored and delighted to be asked to lead the CAA and build on the strong foundations laid by Andrew. We have a special responsibility to protect consumers and the broader public, while enabling the sustainable growth of an innovative and diverse industry that plays a vital role for our economy. I am looking forward to working closely with all those with an interest in shaping a successful future for UK aviation and the consumers it serves as we address the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.”
