Australian Airports Association (AAA) chief executive Caroline Wilkie will lead the organisation for at least two more years after receiving a contract extension.
AAA national chairman Stephen Goodwin announced the contract extension in the association’s March 27 Airport Alert newsletter.
“I am pleased to advise that our CEO Caroline Wilkie has been offered and accepted an extension to her current contract that will see her lead the AAA until October 2017,” Goodwin said.
“Since January 2011 under Caroline’s leadership, we have seen the association grow from a good association representing airport issues in various areas, to the peak airport related association in the country, representing over 260 airport members and 120 corporate members.”
“I look forward to the next phase of growth for the association with new initiatives in the education, advocacy and airport planning, which Caroline and her team will lead.”
Goodwin noted the AAA had under Wilkie’s leadership had increased advocacy and lobbying on behalf of industry, which had delivered “practical positive outcomes for how we run our businesses”.
The next AAA event is the Airfield Pavements and Lighting Forum, to be held in Sydney over two days starting April 30.
