Elizabeth Maclean started her career working for one of the UK’s political parties before taking a path that has seen her spend 30 years in the communications industry, both in consultancy and in-house roles, with a third of her career spent in the aviation sector. Elizabeth has worked in the UK as well as internationally in the Far East and Middle East.
Elizabeth has been fortunate to have had mentors, both female and male colleagues, who have given counsel throughout her career. Being part of the team that sponsored the IAWA Conference and the Young Women in Aviation Forum, in conjunction with the GCAA, held in Dubai in 2015, she recognises the benefits of these forums and the important platform they provide to women starting or developing their careers in aviation.
Elizabeth Maclean is now Co-Managing Director of Herdick Communications with a veteran of the aviation sector, Mike Evans. Herdick launched just over a month ago and is a new strategic communications consultancy based in the UK.
