Flybe appoints new CFO

Philip de Klerk will join UK regional airline Flybe as finance chief later in the year. De Klerk is moving from  SABMiller where he was global head of financial planning and analysis and finance director of its business capabilities programme.

He replaced Andrew Knuckey, who resigned last summer – he leaves the business on August 2.

Flybe chief executive Saad Hammad said: “On behalf of everyone at Flybe, I’d like to thank Andrew Knuckey for his considerable efforts on behalf of the group over the past nine years: in particular, he has played a significant role in implementing our turnaround plan and setting us on the path to profitable growth.

“Andrew is held in great affection by his colleagues at Flybe for his humanity, passion and sense of fun and he leaves with everyone’s very best wishes for the future.

“We are absolutely delighted to have attracted someone of Philip de Klerk’s calibre and welcome him on board.

“He has a blue-chip finance and management pedigree and he will bring a wealth of relevant experience, especially from his time at consumer focused companies and in international markets.

“Philip’s arrival will significantly strengthen and broaden the senior management team as we implement our strategy to deliver and grow a sustainably profitable business and I know he shares our ambition and excitement for the future.

“Philip is discussing an earlier exit date with SABMiller and we look forward to him joining us on the fastest timing possible but certainly no later than  November 1.”
