Former Ryanair deputy CEO and chief operating officer Michael Cawley has today been appointed to the airline’s board.

Cawley worked for Ryanair for 17 years until he retired in March 2014. He is also a non-executive director of Paddy Power and Kingspan Group and chairman of Failte Ireland.

“I am delighted that Michael has accepted our invitation to join the board of Ryanair,” said Ryanair chairman David Bonderman. “His experience, skills, and in-depth knowledge of the industry will be of great benefit to the board and we all look forward to working closely with him as we continue to safely and successfully grow Ryanair across Europe, to the benefit of our customers, our people and our shareholders.”
