OmniServ, the European arm of Air Serv, has recruited Matthew Harrison as its new Operations Director.
Harrison, who joined the airline and airport assistance services provider in July, has spent many years in senior management positions with leading UK companies. Most recently, he was Interim Operations Director for UK ferry company Caledonian Macbrayne. Prior to that, he worked for NCP, Rentokil, Condor Logistics, BT and Securicor, amongst others – including BAA, where he was General Manager for Heathrow Terminal One.
In his new role at OmniServ, Harrison immediately assumes responsibility for OmniServ’s Heathrow operations. He will be adding the company’s Gatwick operations to his remit over the next few months and, as of 1 October will be in charge of all OmniServ’s operations at UK regional airports, including Edinburgh, Liverpool and Stansted.
Commenting on the appointment, Antony Marke, Managing Director of OmniServ, said: “This is excellent news for us as a business, strengthening our senior leadership team and I am very much looking forward to working with Matthew. His track record is impressive and demonstrates huge ability in managing complex services, operations and logistics – including his time at BAA experience, which means he understands how airlines and airports operate and how they interact.”
