Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline, has announced the appointment of Chris Gemmell as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
He will take up his post at the airline’s Glasgow headquarters from 1 March 2024, leading the Finance, HR and IT functions across the airline.
Chris has an extensive background in finance and the travel sector, most recently as Finance Director for the Caledonian Sleeper rail operation.
Prior to that, he held roles in Serco’s transport and healthcare divisions and began his career with Clydesdale Bank (now Virgin Money) – which coincidentally has a long-standing relationship with Loganair.
He will take over from previous CFO David Bowden, who has taken up a new post outside the aviation industry, which has allowed him to work closer to home in Cheshire.
Commenting on the new appointment, Loganair’s Chief Executive Jonathan Hinkles said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Chris to the Loganair team and very much look forward to him taking up the post in March.
He joins at an exciting time as we work to maximise the benefits from the imminent completion of Loganair’s fleet renewal programme, setting up the airline for the next generation.”
Chris Gemmell said:
“I’m delighted to be joining Loganair as CFO and to be moving into the airline industry with such an iconic brand. I very much look forward to working with the team to drive continued success into the future”.
