Monthly Luncheon | Dr Peter Cock

We are pleased to present Dr Peter Cock, CEO of Newcastle Airport, who will be discussing Newcastle Airport’s constant growth and the resultant opportunities for Newcastle business. 

There are major projects in the pipeline, the Airport has launched a major community campaign, and the $1.9 million international processing area fit-out project is nearly complete. It’s easy to understand why the Hunter community has great interest in their airport’s activities.

With a renewed focus on being the airport the region deserves, Newcastle Airport’s CEO, Dr Peter Cock will explain how he and his team are working towards delivering this vision to the benefit of our community.

Peter commenced as Chief Executive Officer of Newcastle Airport in June 2015. Peter has undertaken a significant revision of the business; working closely with the Board to reset strategy and ensure the organisation is match-fit to deliver to its potential. The review involved substantial engagement with key stakeholders and business leaders at both a regional and state level.

Peter was previously employed at Perth Airport where he developed his aviation career, progressing from Environmental Manager to Chief Operating Officer.

Peter holds a PhD in Environmental Science and one of his greatest personal achievements was completing the Mount Everest Base Camp climb in May 2008.
