Tony Chisnall will leave as director of the Capital Program Schiphol on 1 November. The programme, which directs several major construction projects, is coming to an end.
The program ends in its current form. The preparatory work and landside adjustments for the new pier and terminal have been carried out, the tender for the new terminal has been postponed and the completion of the new pier has been postponed. Furthermore, the Landside Central Program (LCP) and the refurbishment of the train and bus station at Schiphol (Multimodale Junction Schiphol) were integrated into the existing organization during the recent reorganization within Schiphol. This makes it a natural moment for Tony to move on and look for new opportunities.
Tony: “The impact of COVID- at Schiphol and aviation is unprecedented. This has consequences for Schiphol’s construction and investment plans. I am proud of what we have achieved, but at the same time I also see that some projects are being postponed or stopped. This also has consequences for my role as director of all those projects. I have therefore decided that now is a good time to move on, with the confidence that the existing team will take this further and look for new opportunities.”
Hanne Buis, Chief Projects & Assets Officer (CPAO) of Royal Schiphol Group: “We would like to thank Tony for his commitment and contribution to the development of Schiphol in recent years. The world in which we operate has changed drastically over the past year and a half. This has consequences for our construction and investment programme, which we are now going to organize in a more integrated manner into the existing organisation. I am delighted with the team that is now supervising the construction of Pier A in the best possible way.”
