Today, as part of my BP50 project, I had the pleasure of interviewing Paul Kehoe, Chief Executive of Birmingham Airport.
With a wealth of past experience in many related areas and industries, Paul told me about how his management and leadership style has been influenced over the years, and how he applies it in his current role.
It was interesting to learn (off camera) that during extreme weather conditions, he wears a different hat- the one of snow plough driver- and his colleagues all do something similar to ensure that the airport remains open for business.
Recent years have seen many changes at the airport, and the future holds more challenges and changes to come. Here Paul tells me how these plans are currently progressing, and describes what the impact on the local economy and landscape will be.
