The Department for Transport has confirmed the reappointment of three Non-Executive Directors at the UK Civil Aviation Authority.
Katherine Corich has been reappointed for three years and Marykay Fuller and Anne Lambert’s time at the regulator has been extended by one further year. All appointments commence on 1 July 2023.
Katherine Corich was first appointed as a Non-Executive Director of the Board in July 2019. Serving on the Audit and People Committees, she has extensive experience of corporate governance, and performance and risk-based regulation and aviation safety.
Marykay Fuller was initially appointed as a Non-Executive Director of the Board in January 2019, serving on the Audit committee and acting as Senior Independent Director since 2021.

Anne Lambert was first appointed as a Non-Executive Director of the Board in February 2019, serving on the Audit and People Committees. She has extensive experience from Government, in particular regulation (insurance, telecommunications, competition and aviation) as well as governance from the non-profit sector.
Civil Aviation Authority Chair, Sir Stephen Hillier said:
“We are pleased that we will be able to continue benefitting from Anne, Marykay, and Katherine’s considerable experience and expertise as the Civil Aviation Authority performs its vital role. We look forward to ensuring that our Non-Executive Directors engage with industry and stakeholders as effectively as ever.”

“I’m delighted that these three experienced people will continue their roles and look forward to working closely with Anne, Marykay, and Katherine as aviation and aerospace meet the challenges of innovation and Jet Zero.”
Notes to Editors:
- The UK Civil Aviation Authority is the UK’s aviation and aerospace regulator. We work so that the aviation industry meets the highest safety standards and consumers have choice, value for money, are protected and treated fairly when they fly.
- Non-Executive Director appointments aim to strike an appropriate balance between allowing the Civil Aviation Authority to benefit from the experience of much valued current Non-Executive Directors and allowing for fresh appointments at an appropriate time to promote new thinking and diversity on the Civil Aviation Authority Board.
- Appointments will be made in the light of any recommendations from the forthcoming report of the Independent Review of the Civil Aviation Authority. Ministers and the Civil Aviation Authority keep the board composition under review considering members’ current skills, board effectiveness reviews, and the changing functions of the Civil Aviation Authority.
