Leadership Track
Head of Physical Security, Airbus
As Airbus’ Head of Physical Security, Craig Morton is responsible for the physical protection of over 65,000 employees, hundreds of aircraft and numerous sites worldwide including major manufacturing sites in France, Germany, Spain, UK, China, USA and Canada.

In addition he manages a team of 180 security experts world-wide and a portfolio of over 0.5BN€ in contracts covering security, fire & emergency response, guarding and intervention needs, as well as their associated systems and service.

As well as bringing digital innovation to the management of physical security operations, he created Airbus’ Corporate Critical Travel Watchtower and its Enterprise Crisis Management organisation. He found solutions to directly address the corporation’s “duty of care” obligations and to manage the most critical worldwide incidents impacting staff and operations around the globe.

He also has a proven track record in IT and digital domains, data governance, supplier management, regulatory compliance & operational responsibility across security, defense, export control and trade sanctions.

Hailing originally from Scotland, Morton is an autodidact in productive time management. When not in the office or with his family, he can be found on one of his epic 200+ kms cycling trips around his adopted country of France, often in the Pyrenees mountains, and often going uphill.
