Chief executive officer of Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton (AGS) Airports Limited, Amanda McMillan OBE, is an ambassador for The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.
She was appointed the position in December 2014 following the sale of the three airports to Ferrovial and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) from Heathrow Airport Holdings.
A qualified chartered accountant, she is responsible for leading and developing a high profile, national business that operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and supports more than 8200 jobs.
In addition to her role as CEO, she is also the managing director of Glasgow Airport – a position she has held since 2008 after joining what was then BAA in October 2005. Prior to that, she also worked for worldwide drinks business Diageo, and global accountancy firm KPMG.
In June 2013, she received an OBE (Order of the British Empire) in recognition of services to business and tourism. Her success as managing director was further recognised in 2016 when Glasgow Airport picked up three major industry accolades: Scottish Airport of the Year, the Airport Operators Association’s (AOA) Best Airport (3-10 Million Passengers) and Airport Council International (ACI) Europe’s Best Airport (5-10 Million Passengers).
Amanda also holds a number of positions outwith AGS Airports Limited, including member of the First Minister of Scotland’s Council of Economic Advisers, non-executive director of utilities firm Business Stream, member of the University of Glasgow Business School Advisory Board and ambassador for The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.
