IoM IoD Dining Club event

IoD Dinner: Gary Cobb, Airport Director for Isle of Man Airport

Great start to the 2023 Dining Club evenings as we welcome Gary Cobb, Airport Director, Isle of Man.

Dining engagements offer an opportunity for members and guests to connect over a tempting three course meal and hear from a local business professional.

Designed as a small private dinner with around 30 attendees, the evening is held under Chatham House Rules, so that the guest can speak openly and honestly with the understanding they will not be quoted outside the room. It is structured as if it was a dinner party with conversation and debate around the guest speakers topic.


Gary is the Airport Director for the Isle of Man Airport; responsible for the safe, efficient running of the airport from operations through to route connectivity.

Prior to this Gary was Chief Operating Officer for Highlands and Islands Airport where he oversaw HIAL’s airport operations and regulatory compliance. He was also responsible for key corporate projects including HIAL’s Air Traffic Management Strategy and other large scale capital projects.

Before joining HIAL, Gary was Head of Airfield Planning at Gatwick Airport where he was responsible for the airport’s innovative northern runway project. He has also held responsibility for the operation of Gatwick’s single runway – the busiest single runway in the world.

He has also been a Non-Executive Director (Trustee) for the Port of Inverness and currently sits on the Board of Visit Isle of Man
