Kerrie Mather, Chief Executive Officer, Sydney Airport Corporation, Tuesday 19 March 2013
Kerrie Mather addressed a private boardroom event for 20 senior business executives where she discussed “Maximising Sydney Airport’s capacity”.
Welcoming close to 37 million passengers a year, Sydney Airport is Australia’s international gateway, serving a network of 99 destinations across 35 international, nine domestic and regional airlines and 10 dedicated freight carriers.
The Sydney Airport precinct contributes $27.6 billion to the economy each year and its location just eight kilometres from the city centre is a competitive advantage to business, particularly the tourism sector. Sydney Airport has invested more than $2 billion in improving services and infrastructure since 2002, delivering a 40 per cent increase in passengers.
Bringing more than 15 years of aviation sector experience to Sydney Airport, Kerrie Mather was appointed as Chief Executive Officer in July 2011. Her focus has been on taking a leadership role in growing tourism and strengthening the airport’s relationships with airlines, government, industry and community.
In her first six months as CEO, Kerrie secured a daily service by award winning low cost carrier AirAsia X and the worldwide inaugural service of Scoot, Singapore Airlines’s new low cost flagship. Together, these airlines will inject more than $330 million to the economy in inbound tourism.
Kerrie brings to Sydney Airport a broad international perspective and demonstrated ability to develop strategic alliances with airlines, commercial partners and tourism bodies. She is a director of Airports Council International, the peak global body for airports and the Tourism & Transport Forum in Australia as well as a member of the Australian Gulf Council (AGC) of Distinguished Advisors and a member of the Australian School of Business Advisory Council.
