management experience has already made him a key addition to the

American Airports family.

“We view his appointment as a sign of our commitment to being the

leading company in our industry,” Price said. “Our leading-edge

management skills and the increasing demand led us to look for an

addition to our team who will fit in with our commitment to innovation

and exceptional service, and it is very fortunate that we were able to

find someone of Bob’s caliber to fulfill this role. I’m confident that

he will play a key role in providing and implementing high quality

management and development solutions for our customers.”
