He also landed the Edinburgh, Lothians & Borders Regional Director Award.

According to Edinburgh Airport, Dewar was instrumental in securing a £150 million investment from the airport’s owners and Board to underpin a five-year investment programme.

In the last 12 months, he is said to have empowered teams across the airport to deliver ground-breaking, industry-leading investment projects with customer service placed firmly at the centre.

Sir John Elvidge, chairman of Edinburgh Airport, said: “After celebrating the busiest, most successful year ever for a Scottish airport, to be recognised with not one but two awards is fantastic validation of Gordon’s hard work and dedication.

“Having recently been named Director of the Year at the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Business Awards, it’s fantastic he is being recognised for his hard work to improve Scotland’s connectivity with the rest of the world. Gordon’s commitment and passion for his role is clear to see. He motivates and inspires teams across the airport to achieve success every day and we’re extremely proud to call him our chief executive.”
