Perth Airport has named North Queensland Airports boss Kevin Brown as its new chief executive.
Brown takes up his new role at Perth Airport in mid-July. He replaces Brad Geatches, who announced his resignation in December 2015.
Before taking charge of North Queensland Airports, Brown has also worked at the British Airport Authority (BAA), including running Edinburgh Airport.
Perth Airport chairman Colin Beckett said Brown represented the start of a “new era” for the airport and his appointment came after an extensive executive search.
“Kevin brings a wealth of experience internationally and within the Australian aviation sector and has a successful track record of strategy development and delivery,” Beckett said in a statement.
“The board was particularly impressed with Kevin’s leadership capabilities and commitment to growing tourism, an area of focus and opportunity in Western Australia,” he said.
