Gama Aviation makes board appointments

January 5, 2018:

Gama Aviation Plc, the global aviation services company, today is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Richard Steeves and Neil Medley to the board of Gama Aviation Plc. These appointments are in line with the company's stated ambition to strengthen its leadership team and position the company for its next stage of growth.

Dr Richard Steeves joins the Gama board as an independent non-executive director. Richard founded and built up Synergy Health plc, the FTSE 250 outsourcer, established in 1991. Synergy grew from a 2 million pound market cap at the 2001 listing on AIM into a global medical hygiene business worth 1.4 billion pound at the time of its takeover by Steris Inc, the Ohio-based sterilisation equipment maker, on 2 October 2015. Richard grew Synergy both organically and through acquisition and brings to the board valuable experience in building an international outsourcing service business. 

Neil Medley, the company's current chief operating officer, has also been appointed to the board. Neil joined Gama in September 2016, as COO, a new position within the leadership team. Neil joined the business from his former post of COO of BAE Systems Applied Intelligence (formerly Detica plc until its acquisition by BAE Systems plc). Neil has been working alongside Marwan Khalek, chief executive of Gama Aviation, to improve business performance across all geographies.

Sir Ralph Robins, chairman of Gama Aviation Plc commented: “I am delighted to welcome Richard to the group. He brings a wealth of commercial and international experience to the business at a time when we are developing our business globally.

"Neil was appointed COO of the group in September 2016 and has already made a valuable impact on the organisation since his appointment. I look forward to him contributing his knowledge and experience as a chief director of Gama.”
