Collier elected President to lead ACI EUROPE

By Doug Newhouse |

Declan Collier, Ceo of Dublin Airport Authority (DAA), was elected President of ACI EUROPE at the recent 21st ACI EUROPE Annual Assembly, Congress & Exhibition in Lisbon, hosted by Aeroportos de Portugal.

Collier said: “I am honoured to take on this role. Recent years have shown our industry still faces plenty of challenges and that we need a strong representation with policy makers and regulators at European level. More than ever, decisions taken in Brussels affect our business and that trend is only set to continue.

“I will work closely with our office and staff in Brussels, and will seek to engage the Board and the membership at large in actively supporting our advocacy efforts. 

“Alongside the strong presence and efficiency of our association, my priority at all times will be on ensuring that we defend the collective interests of all our members – regardless of size, location or business model. This includes members of ACI EUROPE’s World Business Partners programme as they are an essential component of our association.

“Beyond our membership, I will strive to reinforce industry cooperation with airlines, ANSPs and other stakeholders. Experience has shown that we are far more effective when we work in harmony with other stakeholders in the industry. However, this to me, has to be compatible with airports being treated and recognised as commercial businesses in their own right.”
