Veovo has announced the appointment of a new CEO with James Williamson taking on the role as the company aims to expand its reach.
As the company builds on its recent growth, Veovo has appointed Williamson as the new chief executive officer, aiming to accelerate the company’s development of broader capabilities and extend its global reach.
Williamson brings a track record of leading and implementing organisational strategies to scale and deliver customer outcomes in the aviation sector. Previously at Leidos, Williamson was managing director of the international aviation division, developing strong relationships with airport operations and Air Navigation Service providers.
Prior to Leidos he spent over a decade in the defence and aerospace technology sector, taking on senior leadership roles with Leonardo (formerly Finmeccanica).
“I’m convinced that Veovo is one of a tiny number of technology providers in the airport space, who can deliver a major part of the “Total Airport Management” concept,” said James Williamson. “Veovo’s vision and ambition to tackle the critical industry challenges head-on are the ingredients for becoming a significant player in the industry and driving future growth.”
He continues: “Veovo’s customer list is a “who’s who” of high profile customers known for their innovative approaches to improving airport operations and the passenger experience. These customers have high expectations, and despite this, Veovo has an unparalleled reputation for successful solution delivery.
“I’m looking forward to collaborating with our customers, partners and incredibly talented staff to develop a unique proposition to aid airports in tackling these critical industry challenges”
