Describe your job in 3 words? Bringing people together
How did you enter this profession? I am a Chartered Accountant by profession but have always been fascinated by the transport sector. When I joined ACSA in January 2000 as a Financial Manager, I fell in love with aviation. Each year since has been a journey of discovery.
Describe a typical day for you? One of the most interesting aspects of my job is that there is no “typical day”. While there are a number of regulated and formal governance structures that I participate in, I enjoy time with my team and colleagues from the broader ACSA network, airport-based stakeholders and non-airport based stakeholders. Most of the days are spent in meetings or attending events. The rest of the time is spent in front of my laptop reading, reviewing, analysing, planning, reporting, communicating and responding to various requests.
