Thursday, 10 October 2019

Newcastle Airport has welcomed experienced senior executive and prominent Novocastrian Samantha Martin-Williams as a non-executive Director to its Board.          

Mrs. Martin-Williams joins the board with more than 25 years of diverse experience in highly regulated industries including logistics and supply chain, financial services, education and health.

Speaking today about the appointment, outgoing Newcastle Airport Chair Peter Gesling said Mrs. Martin-Williams would bring invaluable skills and experience in strategic transformation and commercial change to the organisation:

“We believe Samantha will not only bring a unique set of skills and experiences to the Board, but also a passion for our region and the role that Newcastle Airport plays in it.”

“The Board is currently going through a renewal process, which will allow us to maintain an agile and future-focused philosophy. Samantha’s appointment is an excellent illustration of that approach,” Mr. Gesling said.

An experienced leader and proud champion of regional Australia, Mrs. Martin-Williams has held, and continues to hold, various roles at iconic Newcastle organisations including Newcastle Permanent Building Society and the University of Newcastle. She replaces long serving Director Ted Campbell from 18 October 2019.

In taking up the position as a Director, Mrs. Martin-Williams said, “It’s an exciting time to join the Board of Newcastle Airport. There is a lot of work to be done and I look forward to working with my Board colleagues and management to help the airport unlock our region’s potential.”
