We’re thrilled to welcome Andy Wilson to the ESP team. Andy is our new Head of Aviation Services, and a long-term ESP advocate! He has worked closely with us as a customer for more than 20 years, working for airlines, airport authorities and systems integrators.
As ESP continues to expand globally, Andy will be key to developing our partnerships within the aviation and travel sectors around the world. Like ESP, Andy has more than 25 years’ experience in aviation, so knows just what aviation customers need from their IT solutions.
Before he got started, we asked Andy some quick questions about joining the ESP team…
What did you do before you joined ESP?
“I’ve been working in the operational side of the aviation industry for over 25 years, starting way back in 1988 with BAA (now Heathrow Airport Holdings Limited), based at Gatwick and Heathrow airports. In 2006, I joined ARINC, managing airport projects in many airports, including Manchester, Heathrow and Doha. In 2012, I joined Ultra Electronics, where I was responsible for their Heathrow Airport projects, as well as the upgrade of the Baggage Reconciliation System (BRS) and its installation into Terminal 5. In 2015, I re-joined Rockwell Collins (now Collins Aerospace) as Head of EMEA Project Management and was most recently responsible for the baggage portfolio of products (including bag drop).”
What drew you to ESP?
“I’ve worked with ESP for over 20 years and consider many of the team as friends. I’ve seen the company develop and grow significantly over that time. I love the fact that ESP has always gone the extra mile and included flexibility at the heart of every job they have undertaken for me. The can-do attitude is something it has retained since its inception.”
What are you looking forward to over the next year?
“I am very much looking forward to meeting our existing customers, welcoming new customers to the team and developing the ESP brand into new geographical territories.”
We are delighted to have Andy on board and wish him every success in his new role at ESP.
