Abu Dhabi Airports CEO leaving to take up UK defence ministry role

Thursday, Mar 26, 2015

The chief executive of Abu Dhabi Airports is leaving after two years to take up a new role with the U.K. government, the company said on Thursday.

Tony Douglas, who took up the role in 2013, will become chief executive of Defence Equipment & Support at the U.K’s ministry of defence, a statement from Abu Dhabi Airports said.

The statement did not disclose if a new CEO had been appointed, but said that "a clear succession plan has been put in place".

Douglas leaves at a time when the Abu Dhabi International Airport is undergoing a multi-billion dollar re-development and expansion. The midfield terminal building at the airport is currently 45 percent complete and remains on track for opening in 2017, the statement said.
