The future of Mildura Airport has been further strengthened, with the appointment of two highly-credentialed new Directors to the Board of Mildura Airport Pty Ltd, the body which operates the regionally significant transport hub.
Stephen Angus and Brooke Curtin join four continuing Directors on an expanded six-member Board.
“The quality of candidates who applied to be non-executive Directors was exceptional,” said Chairman, Mr Peter O’Donnell.
“We received interest from across the country, which I believe is a testament to the high regard people within the aviation industry hold Mildura Airport and what we’re doing here.”
Ms Curtin has exceptional commercial experience in many leading businesses including Qantas. She has been a senior executive at the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, a senior aviation adviser to the Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport and was an F-111 Navigator in the RAAF.
Mr Angus is Airservices Australia’s Executive General Manager of Air Navigation Services, managing 1,800 staff to deliver safe and efficient air traffic management services. He is a qualified Air Traffic Controller with 27 years’ experience in the industry.
“Safety is obviously a key concern for everyone – passengers most certainly – and given Stephen’s current role and history his input in that area is going to be incredibly valuable,” Mr O’Donnell said.
“Brooke also has significant experience with flight operations which are crucial to safety.”
Adding to local expertise
“I think it’s clear our two new Directors will bring outstanding industry and government knowledge to the board table, to add to the excellent local expertise and experience already there,” Mr O’Donnell said. “A strong board has just become stronger.”
Long-time Board member Ross Lake did not stand for re-election due to his outside business commitments.
