EasyJet has appointed Tui’s aviation chief and business improvement director Kenton Jarvis as its new chief financial officer.
Jarvis will replace Andrew Findlay, who announced earlier this year he would be stepping down from the easyJet board and leaving the business.
He has held several senior Tui Group and divisional finance roles at the airline and operator since joining in 2003.
Before that, Jarvis was finance director of Airtours Holidays. Earlier in his career, he held finance roles at Adidas, and is a qualified chartered accountant.
At Tui, he oversaw £12.5 billion in revenue. EasyJet said Jarvis had "proven his ability to drive savings and successful turnaround programmes".
The carrier added his expertise would be "critical" as easyJet "enters a period of recovery from the most severe restrictions of the pandemic".
EasyJet chair John Barton said Jarvis was a candidate of the "very highest calibre", who brought with him "vast industry experience and highly relevant skills" which would be crucial over the coming months, and beyond.
Barton added he wanted to thank Findlay for his contribution over the past five years, and helping manage the airline through recent "unprecedented challenges".
Johan Lundgren, easyJet chief executive, said: "Kenton will join us during this period of exceptional challenge for global aviation. His depth of knowledge of the travel industry and financial skills will be key as we continue to rebuild following the pandemic.
"I look forward to working closely with him as we ensure aviation plays a vital role in the economic recovery and enables people to fly for holidays and work once again."
