Mayor welcomes appointment of new Western Sydney Airport CEO

LIVERPOOL Mayor Wendy Waller has welcomed the appointment of Simon Hickey as the new CEO of Western Sydney Airport (WSA).
WSA is the Liverpool-based federal government organisation that will build and run the future Western Sydney International Airport.  
 
“Western Sydney Airport is a key partner of Liverpool City Council,” Mayor Waller said. “This one-in-100-year project is a key local economic driver, particularly at this time. 
 
“I look forward to continuing the good relations with Western Sydney Airport which chose our city as its base in 2017, a meaningful commitment to Sydney’s third CBD. 
 
Mr Hickey has over 30 years of experience working in the commercial, infrastructure and aviation industries. He takes over from former CEO Graham Millett.
 
WSA chair Paul O’Sullivan said Mr Hickey was the right man to lead the organisation through the airport’s construction and into operation in the years to come.
 
“Western Sydney Airport has a very positive profile in local and overseas aviation markets, which led to a very high level of interest in the CEO role from candidates across the world,” he said.
 
Mr Hickey said his new role will be a challenging and rewarding experience.
 
“Western Sydney International will mean that for the first time in Sydney, airlines and passengers will have a choice about which airport they want to use,” he said.
 
“Introducing choice to Sydney’s aviation market is a compelling proposition and one that will lead to stronger outcomes for passengers, airlines and air cargo operators.”
 
Mr Hickey has served on the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation Board and is currently its Deputy Chair.
 
“My focus will be not only on building the infrastructure, but on building the commercial proposition around passenger aviation, air cargo and our on-airport business park,” Mr Hickey said.
