Scottish Aviation Firm Names New Chief Executive Officer

Scottish aviation firm John Menzies – one of Scotland’s oldest and largest companies – has announced the appointment of Giles Wilson as CEO with immediate effect.

John Menzies plc is the holding company of Menzies Aviation plc, an aviation services business providing ground handling, cargo handling, cargo forwarding and into-plane fuelling, based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

He was named chief financial officer of the group in June 2016 and was made interim chief executive on 12 March this year on the departure of Forsyth Black.

Wilson joined the group in 2011, and has held senior roles including finance director of Menzies Aviation and senior vice president of African, Middle East and Indian Operations.

Menzies, which dates back to 1833 when it opened a bookshop on Edinburgh’s Princes Street, selling The Scotsman, said Wilson “brings great financial acumen and a deep knowledge of the aviation services market to this role”.

Black had been ratified as chief executive in September, returning Menzies to what it described at the time as a “more standard executive structure”.

By 2017, other countries and contracts had come online, and with the acquisition of ASIG, the world’s largest into-plane fuelling business, we were firmly established as a global player in cargo, fuelling and ground handling.

It was time for the business to move forward as a ‘pure-play’ aviation business and so in 2018, the board agreed to sell the entire share capital of the distribution business.

The transformation of John Menzies’ business had come full circle, and the next evolution of the aviation market would be our main focus.
