Nick Swift is to leave Go-Ahead for the British Airways CFO role

Nick Swift is to join British Airways as its chief financial officer. Swift will take over from Keith Williams on 7 March. Williams becomes chief executive on the merger of British Airways and Iberia by the end of 2010.

Swift joins from Go-Ahead, the FTSE 250-listed train and bus company, where he serves as group FD.

Sir Patrick Brown, Go-Ahead chairman, said: “On behalf of the board, I should like to thank Nick for his significant contribution to the group since he joined in July 2007. During this time, despite tough economic conditions, we have improved the group’s cashflows and strengthened our financing, leaving the group in robust financial health. Looking to the future, the recruitment of a successor is underway and the board intends to have the appointment in place in good time.”
