Aspen would like to congratulate Andrea Sillars who has just been appointed as Director of HR at Highlands & Islands Airports Ltd. (HIAL). Andrea joins HIAL from Highland Hospice.

HIAL is a public corporation wholly owned by the Scottish Ministers. They operate and manage 11 Airports at Barra, Benbecula, Campbeltown, Dundee, Inverness, Islay, Kirkwall, Stornoway, Sumburgh, Tiree and Wick John O’Groats. The airports are varied and diverse, but all are vital to the social and economic welfare of the areas they serve. They are supported by subsidies from the Scottish Government in accordance with Section 34 of the Civil Aviation Act 1982.

Andrea will be a key member of HIAL’s senior leadership team and will help develop a strong HR strategy, linked to the organisation’s business strategy, enabling HIAL to build organisational and individual capability. Andrea brings a strong combination of generalist operational HR, strategic overview plus leadership and business transformation skills.

Our Director who led the recruitment campaign at Aspen, Catriona Mackie, explains:

‘HIAL has recently undergone a significant period of growth and the Director of HR will play a key role in building on this. After a rigorous recruitment campaign we are confident that Andrea has the ambition, drive and partnership skills to take HIAL forward to its next phase. HIAL is a fantastic organisation and we were delighted to continue our work in the Highlands & Islands region.’

We would like to wish both HIAL and Andrea all the best.
