Two more independent heads for ACL board
The UK-based airport slot coordinator, Airport Coordination, is extending its board by two more independent non-executive directors with immediate effect.
Ailsa Beaton and Valerie Gordon-Walker now join Catherine Brown, former CEO of the Food Standards Agency and an ACL non-executive director since 2017, and Jeff Halliwell, who became ACL’s first independent chair in 2013.
Beaton has worked in senior executive roles at General Electric, PA Consulting, ICL and, most recently, with London’s Metropolitan Police Service.
Gordon-Walker is a former managing director, executive committee member and group head of human resources. She served in various positions at Barclays, BP, West LB and Marks & Spencer, and also worked in the public sector as an independent senior advisor to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) at the Bank of England.
