Monarch Airlines has promoted Tim Jeans, managing director of the scheduled service division, to the new role of managing director of the company. He will also take a place on the company’s board.
Jeans, who takes over the role on 1 February, will be replaced by Liz Savage, who will also be managing director of flymonarch.com as well as taking responsibility for the sales, marketing and commercial functions. Savage previously held the position of Director of Business Development at easyJet and was key to driving future strategy, driving the expansion of easyJet’s network and bringing key business innovations to market.
The reshuffle also sees the departure of Jonathan Crick, currently sales and marketing director for Monarch’s scheduled service division. Crick, who has been with Monarch for 15 years, previously held a number of senior management roles within the organisation, including board director since 2000. Crick leaves to pursue other interests outside of the airline industry.
The appointment of Tim Jeans as managing director of Monarch will allow CEO, Peter Brown to expand his own responsibilities and take on a wider group role to include the airline’s sister companies – Cosmos Holidays, Avro, Archers and somewhere2stay.
