Menzies Aviation, the global aviation logistics specialist, has appointed Jennifer Gourley to its Americas Leadership team as chief financial officer, effective 16 March. Jennifer will be based in Dallas-Forth Worth and report to John Redmond, executive vice president, Americas.
Gourley will oversee the financial activities for the Americas region, where Menzies has operations at 115 airports in seven countries.
She joins Menzies Aviation after 14 years with the Sysco Corporation, where she was Gourley on its global transformation project.
Speaking on her appointment, Jennifer commented: “I am inspired by opportunities to build upon Menzies’ legacy and position in the industry and further the mission to provide excellence from touchdown to take-off. I am honoured to join a talented team during an exciting time of customer-centric focus and transformation. The chance to partner with over 30,000 associates to serve our customers, communities, and shareholders is also incredibly energising.”
John Redmond, executive vice president, Americas said: “I am delighted to welcome Jennifer to our Menzies Americas team. This is an exciting time for us as we continue to invest and grow our footprint in this region.”
