ATN Power 50-Paul Griffiths
Just a year into his post as CEO of Dubai Airports, Paul Griffiths played his part in ensuring the glitch-free launch of Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport in October, 2008.
Next June, he has to ensure that phase one of Al Maktoum International Airport – a nine million passenger terminal – opens smoothly and that airlines have signed up to use it. Beyond that, he has to ensure the airport continues to develop towards its mind-boggling stretch target of handling 160 million passengers per annum.
Prior to moving to Dubai, Griffiths was managing director of London’s Gatwick Airport, operated by British Airports Authority. He also spent 14 years with Richard Branson at the Virgin Group.
