Vistair appoints former Easyjet COO Warwick Brady as board adviser

Warwick Brady, previously Chief Operating Officer of easyJet plc and recently appointed Deputy Group CEO of Stobart Group plc, has agreed to join Vistair Systems Ltd as a strategic Board Advisor. Warwick’s extensive commercial, management and sector experience will be invaluable for Vistair and will help to further accelerate its development and growth.

Warwick Brady, Board Advisor of Vistair, comments: “I have known Ian and Vistair for a number of years so the opportunity to support a business, which I have long admired as one that provides leading edge, easy-to-use technology across all platforms for management and front line staff, was too good to miss. Vistair’s technology just makes it easy and provides a documentation management system and service that simply saves money.

The really exciting part is that Vistair has a great opportunity to grow across the globe but moreover extend into the wider transport sector where Vistair’s skills in highly regulated businesses will come to the fore.  Vistair’s recent progress combined with the dedication of the team in Bristol and the global opportunities available makes this an exciting business and I look forward to being part of the team.”

Warwick Brady, prior to Stobart Group, worked at easyJet where his role as Chief Operating Officer was central in helping to construct a highly efficient, low-cost, customer-orientated operation that delivered significant value for shareholders and customers.

From 2002 – 2005, Warwick was Deputy Operations Director at Ryanair, where he held various senior executive roles including Deputy CEO of Buzz, following its acquisition from KLM.  He was subsequently CEO at Mandala Airlines in Asia and spent two years as Chief Operating Officer of Air Deccan/Kingfisher in India before joining easyJet.  Warwick is also a non-executive Director of FirstGroup plc, a £5bn train and bus business which operates in the UK and USA.

Ian Herbert, CEO of Vistair said: “The relationship with Warwick has always been strong, partly as a result of the excellent commercial relationship we have built up with easyJet over the past 11 years. Warwick agreeing to become an advisor and supporter of Vistair is a tremendous boost to the business and a further sign of the confidence the industry in general has with our approach, our products and our services. His insights and experience will I believe prove invaluable.”
