Cotswold Airport names new airport manager

Cotswold Airport in Kemble, UK, has named Christian Ackroyd as the hub’s new manager. His role will include developing a five-year strategic plan to grow the business’s diversification of aviation-related activities, in addition to streamlining the operational development of the aerodrome.

Commenting on his appointment, Ackroyd said, “I am delighted to be working at Cotswold Airport and am excited about what the future holds for both aviation and non-aviation business.

“The aerodrome has incredible potential for growth and new GNSS – global navigation satellite system – approach will undoubtedly change the operational face of the business.”

Ackroyd joins the airport from the army senior leadership team with REME (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers) Regiment, where he served for 20 years. His experience includes active service in countries including Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan. Ackroyd also served in Canada, Poland and the USA for operational training, including a two-year exchange with the US Army.
