Tough Decisions: Mervyn Walker – Chief Operations Officer with Menzies Aviation

Today we are joined by Mervyn Walker – Chief Operations Officer with Menzies Aviation. This being the second appearance for the straight talking Irishman. Knowing Mervyn as long as I have – you always get a direct and straight forward answer to any question. Today is no different.
From the first episode with Mervyn to this one, so much has changed in the business, globally and personally. Mervyn talks passionately about how his business has coped during the difficult lock-down months and how Menzies has communicated and supported employees during difficult times. Tough decisions ahead. Menzies has a lot of history and will be around for a long time to come! Again, with Mervyn we focus on planned positives even with more challenges to come.
