After British Airways and Air Astana Lloyd Paxton lands at Malev

Today at around 12.00 CET Mr Lloyd Paxton became the new CEO of Malev Hungarian Airlines. After 2 years (a long term in Malev’s life) Mr Janos Gonci left the position at Malev. He will stay with the company as a member of the board of directors.

Mr Lloyd Paxton is the former president of Air Astana, the national airline of Kazakhstan. A British national, he has been involved in creating and developing Air Astana since it started operations in 2002. He worked for British Airways for 35 years, 25 of which all over the world in many challenging countries and situations. He was awarded the MBE (Member of the British Empire) in 1981 for services to British interests in Iran. He has been the managing director of a RoRo ferry company in Thailand, an aviation consultant with British Airways Speedwing, and managing director of the Menzies Aviation Group Germany GmbH. He is a fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, and a member of the Chartered Management Institute.

Malev was privatized end of last year. The new owner Boris Abramovic, a well-known businessman and owner of Air Union in Russia has not started any real changes at the airline since he bought it. Apparently this step is the first milestone of a new process that will hopefully lead the airline towards profitability.

Mr Paxton is the first CEO at Malev who comes from the airline industry.
