UK CAA appoints new Head of Policy
The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has appointed Tim Johnson as its new Head of Policy.
He will lead a new team formed by drawing together existing functions in the CAA, to strengthen policy development, improve co-ordination (particularly in Europe and internationally), and facilitate better sharing of skills across the organisation.
Iain Osborne, Group Director of Regulatory Policy, said: “Tim joins us at a key moment for both the CAA’s development as an organisation and the UK aviation sector, with an ever-increasing focus on aviation’s environmental impact, the consumer experience, and airport capacity. I look forward to working with Tim to ensure the CAA brings its expertise to bear as effectively as possible in these and other important policy areas.”
Tim Johnson joins the CAA after a career spanning public and private sectors, most recently having spent six years working for NATS, the air traffic control company, where he currently heads up its economic regulation team. His earlier career was in the civil service and included roles in HM Treasury and the Shareholder Executive. He will join the CAA in January 2014.
