ADS, the UK's aerospace, defence and security trade organisation, has appointed Graham Chisnall as managing director, commercial aerospace and operations.

Ian Godden, Chairman of ADS says: "Chisnall's experiences as an engineer, project manager and in various director positions within both BAE Systems and GKN are ideal for the role.

"His challenge will be to support both the success of the companies with major UK operations in this sector who have household names such as Airbus, Rolls-Royce, Bombardier, AgustaWestland, Cobham and Meggitt as well as the less well-known 300 SME members of ADS in aerospace and the wider community of 2,600 SMEs in the UK. This high technology manufacturing and service sector will be critical for Britain's restoration of wealth and jobs in the next five years."
