Women Business Leaders Breakfast Series
Topic:"Moving Past the Mega Hub"
Speaker: Christina Cassotis, Chief Executive Officer , Allegheny County Airport Authority
When Christina Cassotis was hired as the new CEO of the Allegheny County Airport Authority, she was given a specific mandate: increase air service.
As the first female leader of the organization that manages Pittsburgh International Airport and Allegheny County Airport in West Mifflin, Cassotis is challenged to move PIT past the mega-hub structure which collapsed 15 years ago, to a successful origin and destination facility that meets the needs of an emerging region.
Since January, Cassotis has engaged with business and community leaders to better understand air service needs and the type of airport experience that travelers prefer, both Pittsburgh International and the county airport. She has also met with domestic and international airline officials to make the case for increased flights and better amenities at both facilities.
With a background in communications and international aviation planning and consulting, Casottis brings a range of experiences to her current role as CEO. She has been working tirelessly since arriving in January, and already, positive changes are occurring.
