He has represented all US and Canadian commercial service airports and has provided advisory services to over 50 US airports, including many of the nation’s largest. His past roles include serving as Head of Policy for the Airports Council International North America, and as Associate Deputy Secretary and Head of Intermodalism for the US Department of Transportation.
