Additional Information

I am a Senior Airport Operations Executive with a nearly 30-year track record of driving operational excellence and ensuring safety in the airline industry. From the beginning of my career as an aircraft engineer to the my most recent role as President of United Ground Express, I have consistently upheld the highest standards to ensure the safety of all personnel, equipment and aircraft. I have held many airport roles which gives me broad and deep expertise in airport safety protocols and regulatory compliance. As the President of an airport ground handling company, I understand the intricacies of accountability and compliance where there are numerous operators working side-by-side, critical for establishing fault in airport damage / injury cases. I am a seasoned speaker and have presented at numerous industry events, conferences, graduate programs, and internal company events. I have a keen attention to detail and strong planning/organization skills.
