Over the course of my career, I have participated in a number of ACI regional committees and know first-hand the benefits that ACI brings to member airports in terms of information sharing, collaboration, and the promotion of excellence in aviation.”
ACI World Director General and CEO Luis Felipe de Oliveira said "We warmly welcome Pierre Charbonneau as Vice President of Events and Commercial Services and Darryl Dowd as Vice President of Safety, Security, and Operations.
