10 01 2007
With effect from 01 February 2007, a number of board level changes will take place at Monarch, with the creation of a new role and the appointment of a new Board Director.
Tim Jeans, who has been with the airline since November 2004 and is currently Managing Director of Monarch’s scheduled service division, has been appointed to the newly created position of Managing Director, Monarch Airlines and will assume responsibility for the day to day affairs of the airline.
Tim’s current position will be taken over by Liz Savage, who will be joining the airline as Managing Director of flyMonarch.com and will take charge of the sales and marketing activities for the scheduled area of the business as well as commercial functions. Liz previously held the position of Director of Business Development at easyJet and played a pivotal role in creating future strategy, driving the expansion of easyJet’s network and bringing key business innovations to market.
The changes to the Board also include the departure of Jonathan Crick, currently Sales and Marketing Director for Monarch’s scheduled service division. Jonathan, who has been with Monarch for fifteen years, previously held a number of senior management roles within the organisation, including Board Director since 2000. Jonathan’s decision to leave will allow him to pursue other interests outside of the airline industry.
Commenting on the changes, Chief Executive of Monarch Airlines, Peter Brown said, “As we continue to successfully develop our business, it is important that we seek to best serve the needs of our customers, staff and shareholders alike. The extension of Tim’s role to include all aspects of the airline plus the appointment of Liz within flyMonarch.com will help us to achieve this and to drive the business forward. I wish them every success in their new roles”.
The appointment of Tim Jeans as Managing Director of Monarch Airlines will allow CEO, Peter Brown to expand his own responsibilities and take on a wider group role to include the airline’s sister companies – Cosmos Holidays, Avro, Archers and somewhere2stay. In addition, Peter will be working closely with Alan Murray and his team at First Aviation to further develop Monarch’s 3rd party tour operator business and to enable its tour operator customers to benefit from the planned fleet changes at Monarch over the next few years.Previous Page
