The self-proclaimed Head Cash Cow – Steven Greenway!Dec 18
As hard as the entire Scoot family can work at getting our airline up and running, and at keeping it running once it is up, nothing will be possible if we cannot sustain ourselves financially. And the man responsible for that is none other than Steven Greenway, Scoot’s Head of Commercial, who’s got so much experience behind him that we think ‘low-cost’ is now part of his genetic makeup.
Here is the man himself….
1. How would you explain what you do in 99 words or less?
I am Head of Commercial, a function that is essentially responsible for generating the airline’s revenue – everything we do is focused on this key outcome. I am responsible for planning, marketing, ancillary revenue, product, sales and distribution. It’s a broad, challenging portfolio, but it’s something I love.
2. What were you up to before Scoot became part of your life?
I was a Partner in an airline advisory firm for over 4 years working on a broad range of assignments including airline start-ups and turnarounds. I was fortunate enough to work in geographically diverse areas like Eastern Europe, the Middle East, the Philippines and most recently Japan.
3. What made you want to join the Scoot Family?
It’s not often you get the chance to work on an airline start-up, especially one backed by an airline as successful as Singapore Airlines. Plus I’ve always wanted to live in Asia, especially Singapore. It was a perfect combination!
4. How has it been since you moved to Singapore?
I’ve been working pretty well non-stop since I’ve got here but loving it – Singapore is so easy to get yourself settled. Everything works, people are helpful and I’m loving the food … I’m slowly making my way through all the key Hawker markets! I think I’ve also mostly adjusted to the humidity as well … It’s a killer when you first move here.
5. What would we find in your refrigerator right now?
Since I am living the bachelor life at the moment not much – From memory OJ, yogurt, some take-out leftovers (I think it is starting to smell) and some bottles of Tiger. I pretty well eat out except for breakfast. I think I need to go on a health streak!
He’s even started using the word ‘lah’ in his daily talk. Much thanks, Steven!
