In September 2014, Ronald married his partner Ewen of 10 years in San Fransisco. Originally from Paisley, they both now live in Glasgow. Formally Head of Security & Terminal Operations for Glasgow Airport, and laterally Operations Director at Aberdeen Airport he has now taken up the position of Head of Infrastructure & Technical Services back at Glasgow Airport. Ronald started at the airport as a Modern Apprentice and has developed through various roles to his current senior position on the airport’s leadership team.
Ronald enjoys travelling, socialising with friends and most recently has picked up the fitness bug to get healthier and is in training for the Glasgow 10k in October.
Ronald came out to his friends and family in his early twenties and whilst he believed it would have been a huge challenge was humbled by the kind support of all those around him particularly at work. Through his visibility and roles at the airport, he often provides support to others across the airport campus confidentially in dealing with LGBT+ issues. Ronald is delighted to be joining the Icon Awards team this year.
