Cardiff airport has appointed Kerry Quinn as operations director.

Quinn joined from Durham Tees Valley airport in July where she had been airport director of operations since 2008.

Originally from Middlesbrough, she joined Teesside airport (now Durham Tees Valley airport) in 1999 as head of HR.

Over the next decade she held roles such as landside operations manager, head of airport services and later, director of operations.

Quinn said: “I am looking forward to the new and exciting challenge of my new role at Cardiff airport and relish the opportunity that exists with the ongoing development of the airport.

“I understand how vitally important the airport is to Wales and I’m committed to further developing its reputation and efficiency through its operations and customer experience.”

Cardiff airport managing director Patrick Duffy said: “We welcome Kerry to the team – her addition strengthens our knowledge, experience and leadership.”
