NATS Announces New Communications Director
NATS, the UK’s leading air traffic services and solutions provider, has today announced that Simon Warr is to be its new Communications Director.
Richard Deakin, NATS’ Chief Executive Officer, said Simon brought “a wealth of experience in public relations with an international perspective” which made him a perfect fit for the company.
The former Director of Communications and Public Affairs at Jaguar Land Rover joins NATS from Abu Dhabi-based renewable energy company Masdar where he was Global Head of Communications.
During his three years at Jaguar Land Rover he led a global team of 80 and was responsible for all company internal and external communications, and reputation and issue management with all stakeholders. His key achievement was to lead the company’s communications during its sale to Tata in June 2008.
He said: “It is a very exciting time to join NATS and I am looking forward to furthering the company’s reputation as a global leader in air traffic services.”
A former journalist, Simon is also the Vice President of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce.
Simon is due to start work at the NATS headquarters at Whiteley in Hampshire on 3 January.
