Former HS2 director lands new technical role at airport
A FORMER director from the HS2 high-speed rail project is joining Birmingham Airport’s senior management team.
Andy Duggins will take up the post of technical services director next month, bringing 25 years of experience working on high-profile infrastructure projects. His previous roles include as project director for the two HS2 stations which will be built near the airport and in Birmingham city centre.
The role of technical services director was previously held on an interim basis by Rod Hulse who will undergo a handover period.
Simon Richards, acting managing director of Birmingham Airport, said: “Andy joins us at an exciting time when we are developing our masterplan which will ensure that our airport facilities deliver great customer experience, meet forecast demand growth and deliver operational efficiencies.
“Over the next three years, Birmingham Airport will be investing £130 million on its facilities, including an extension and modernisation of the departure lounge, enlarged security facility and expanded self-service check-in facilities.”
