Pugh appointed BAS chairman
Bermuda Aviation Services Ltd has appointed David Pugh as chairman and Gail Miller as deputy chairman, effective immediately.
Mr Pugh, former chief financial officer at insurer Argus, succeeds Michael Darling, who retired from the position.
Mr Pugh has been a director of BAS since 2011. He is a Chartered Accountant with more than 45 years of experience. Most recently, he has been acting as special adviser to the chief executive officer of the Argus Group, a position from which he will retire on June 30.
He was CFO of Argus for 11 years, when he was responsible for maintaining the integrity of all financial information and accounting processes for the BSX-listed company. He also acted as a director of all Bermuda subsidiaries of Argus Group Holdings Ltd until September 2015 and all the European subsidiaries of the same company until recently.
Mr Pugh is also a director of MNLC Holdings (Bermuda) Ltd.
Ms Miller, JP has enjoyed a long association with BAS having joined the human resources department in 1982, and worked for the company for 13 years. She was appointed as a director of the BAS board in 1996, acts as chairwoman of the Compensation Committee and also serves on the Audit Committee.
Ms Miller is vice-president, Human Resources & Administration at The Oil Group of Companies.
Mr Darling, the outgoing chairman, says: “David's experience as a director, chief financial officer, running a BSX-listed company as well as his responsibilities in running European operations will provide invaluable background to BAS. As one of Bermuda's largest private employers, Gail's background in human resources is vital.”
