In late 2019, I announced that Craig Richmond would retire as President & CEO of Vancouver Airport Authority effective June 30th, 2020. The Airport Authority Board of Directors immediately set up a Task Force to begin recruitment for the next President & CEO. The Task Force has made significant progress; however, in the event that there is a delay in a new CEO coming on board, Craig Richmond has agreed to stay on as President & CEO, temporarily as required. Craig oversaw operations during 9/11 and SARS and continues to provide tremendous leadership with his Executive Team during this unprecedented time. We are grateful to Craig for his commitment to YVR during the most challenging time we have ever faced.
Chair, Board of Directors
