Johanna Wallace has joined Highlands and Islands Airports (HIAL) as its new finance and commercial director.
She is responsible for managing all aspects of the group’s finances, including business development, procurement and property management.
The former finance director at Vets Now is experienced in a broad range of sectors, including manufacturing, brewing and oil and gas.

HIAL’s managing director, Inglis Lyon, said: “I’m pleased to welcome Johanna to HIAL’s senior management team.
“Johanna’s extensive knowledge and experience in finance and commerce will not only contribute significantly to HIAL’s future strategy, but will assist us to address the challenges we currently face as we continue to deal with the effects of Covid.”
