British Airways Appoints Four New Leaders to Management Positions

Calum Laming -Director of Business Recovery

British Airways has appointed four new leaders to its Management Committee as it accelerates its recovery and the delivery of its new business strategy following the most challenging period in its history.

Calum Laming becomes the airline’s Director of Business Recovery, leading its mission to rebuild its global network, resources and operations following the pandemic and ensuring the business has the resilience and agility needed in a dramatically changed aviation landscape for the years ahead.

Calum is currently Chief Customer Officer at Vueling - the Barcelona-based IAG airline - and has previously held a variety of customer, brand, product and marketing roles at Virgin Atlantic, Air New Zealand and Etihad Airways.

Michelle Lydon has been appointed as Chief People Officer. She will shortly join British Airways from QinetiQ – global experts in defence, aerospace and security – where she was the company’s Group Human Resources Director.

In her role at British Airways, Michelle will oversee the airline’s strategy for people and people transformation, learning and development, reward, strategic resourcing, recruitment, employee and industrial relations.

During the pandemic, Colm Lacy and Tom Stevens stepped up on an interim basis to the roles of Chief Commercial Officer and Director of Brand and Customer Experience respectively. Both have now been confirmed in their positions.

Michelle Lydon starts her new role with British Airways in February, with Calum Laming joining in April.
