In the past month alone, IAPs Jacqueline Yaft and Jason Terreri were both named to run major U.S. airports.

Those of us who are involved with AMPAP are always gratified to hear such positive news about our graduates. It validates the talents of our participants and affirms the career-enhancing value of the Programme.

Both Yaft and Terreri bring solid credentials to their new positions. Jacqueline was named Executive Director for Aviation at Austin Bergstrom International Airport and she brings over 20 years of aviation experience to the job including senior positions at JFK, Denver International and, more recently, as Deputy Executive Director for Operations at LAX, where she earned high praise for her leadership during a time the airport was conducting a series of major infrastructure projects.

Jason Terreri was selected in April to lead the Syracuse Hancock International Airport as its Executive Director. He was confirmed unanimously by the airport authority board after a nationwide search. Jason has more than 15 years of airport experience, most recently as Senior Operations Project Director for Airports Worldwide, where among other assignments, he was a primary interface with two AWW-run airports in Costa Rica. Previous to that assignment he had been Assistant Director at Horry County airports (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina) and had spent several years as Interim Director of New Business Development at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airports.

Join us in congratulating both on their promotions!
