Invercargill Airport Limited (IAL) has announced the appointment of Stuart Harris as their new Chief Executive.

A fast-growing regional airport and the gateway to the far South, IAL has jets now flying non-stop from Auckland and direct flights from all major cities, as well as being the starting point to all of the beautiful landmarks that Southland has to offer including Fiordland, Stewart Island and the Catlins.

To move IAL to a higher level of performance and to enhance the already strong offerings to passengers, IAL was looking for a passionate and energetic executive to take on the role of Chief Executive. Decipher Group was fortunate to have the opportunity to partner with IAL on this critical executive search and recruitment assignment.

With a Master of Business Administration and Master of Fire Engineering, Stuart has spent the last 15 years with global fire engineering consultancy Holmes Fire NZ. Combining more than 10 years involvement and experience with airports, designing terminal and commercial building developments from planning stages through to construction and commissioning, the IAL board are delighted to have Stuart lead the team during a period of substantial growth.

Paul joined the team in October 2022.

Executive search led by Leanne Crozier.
