Amanda McMillan CA appointed to Brexit advisory council
Amanda McMillan CA, CEO of Glasgow Airport, has been named as one of the 18 business, economic and political experts who will make up the new Standing Council on Europe, following the UK's vote to leave the EU.
The Scottish Government's Standing Council on Europe will be chaired by Professor Anton Muscatelli, Principal and Vice Chancellor, University of Glasgow, and will consider the impact of any proposed changes to the UK’s relationship with the EU and how they would impact Scotland.
Speaking of her appointment to the council, Amanda told CA Today that she is “keen to give a voice to business at the table and will therefore be open to dialogue and feedback from ICAS members”.
The First Minister Nicola Sturgeon made the announcement on the council’s creation last week during a statement to parliament on the outcome of the EU referendum.
She said: “We now need to set out and evaluate all the impacts of the referendum result and all of the options open to Scotland to secure our relationship with the EU.
"The Council draws on a breadth and wealth of knowledge and experience, comprising specialists with backgrounds in business, finance, economics, European and diplomatic matters, and it will encompass a range of political and constitutional opinions.”
Amanda, who received an OBE in June 2013 for her services to business and tourism, became Chief Executive of AGS Airports Limited, the partnership between Ferrovial and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) established to invest in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton airports, in 2014.
