Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has appointed Martin Ryan as the Executive General Manager of the newly created Consumers Group, following an organisational restructuring in April. He officially stepped into the role on May 6 2019.

The group will focus on leading the development and implementation of innovative solutions that enhance the customer proposition and manage the terminal retail & commercial, parking & ground transport areas of the airport.

BAC Chief Executive Gert-Jan de Graaff said Martin’s appointment is an incredible opportunity to bring a fresh approach and leadership while leveraging his vast experience.

“With more than 20 years’ experience in various senior commercial positions, Martin has extensive experience in strategic planning and execution, operational and project management, and new product development,” said de Graaff.

“Martin has brought a consumer-focused and innovative approach to the Parking and Transport Services Team, and when you consider that we are able to appoint an internal candidate following an extensive global search, his appointment is testament to the depth of talent we have at BAC.”
