New M.A.G Board At Stansted For Stakeholder Reception

28 Mar 2013

Over 70 representatives from local businesses, airline partners, chambers of commerce, local authorities and airport charity partners gathered today at the Stansted Radisson Blu Hotel for a reception on behalf Stansted Airport and Manchester Airports Group (M.A.G) to mark the acquisition of the airport by M.A.G.

The reception was an opportunity for invited guests to meet with Mike Davies, Chairman of M.A.G; Charlie Cornish, M.A.G’s Chief Executive; new Stansted Managing Director, Andrew Harrison as well as Board members and other senior leaders from M.A.G and the airport.

The event coincided with the first ever meeting of the new M.A.G Board since the purchase of Stansted and following Industry Funds Management (IFM) taking a 35.5% shareholding in the enlarged Group.

Commenting on the reception, Andrew Harrison said:

“I’m delighted so many representatives from the airport, local community, business groups and other organisations were able to join us and meet with the M.A.G Board and the airport’s senior leadership team today.

“M.A.G and Stansted have both now entered a new and exciting era. We have significant investment plans to re-vamp the terminal and aim to return passenger numbers to growth as quickly as possible so it’s even more vital the airport and the local community develop and maintain strong links to maximise the full potential of Stansted and unlock the opportunities that new ownership will undoubtedly bring.

“I would like to thank all the valued partners who found time in their busy diaries to meet with the team and I very much look forward to working with them as we develop our ambitious plans for Stansted.”
