Peter Davies was Managing Director of Air Southwest a UK regional airline. Peter has more than 30 years experience in aviation including chief executive of SN Brussels Airlines, and senior posts with DHL Express Systems in the UK, Belgium and North America for 12 years. Most recently he was chief executive of Caribbean Airlines in the West Indies.

As Chief Executive of SN Brussels Airlines, the Belgium national airline he was responsible for the turnaround following the bankruptcy of Sabena Airlines.

Prior to that he was Chief Operating Office, DHL Express, USA where he was responsible for over 10,000 people and realised a significant turnaround in profitability and increased sales margins from 4% to 12%. Before that, he was Regional Director, DHL Europe where he established DHL as the leader in express delivery across emerging markets in Central, Southern and Eastern Europe.

In 2006 Peter accepted the appointment as Chief Executive of BWIA West Indies Airways which closed later that year. A new regional airline Caribbean Airlines of which Peter was Chief Executive commenced operations in January 2007.

Both SN Brussels Airlines and BWIA West Indies Airways entailed extensive re-organisation, change and transformation. They had been state owned industries, Sabena went bust and SN Brussels was the phoenix. Sabena had made a profit only twice in its 70 year history whereas SN Brussels Airlines made a profit immediately and is still going strong. Likewise, BWIA West Indies Airways made a profit only twice in its 66 year history. Peter recommended to the Trinidadian government that they close it and launch a new airline, Caribbean Airlines. After only a few months there was a discernible difference to the punctuality and financial performance of the airline.


With his level of experience and knowledge, Peter is sure to provide compelling words of wisdom to any speaking event.
