Organizational Update from our President & CEO

Michele Mawhinney, Vice President People & Sustainability, Don Ehrenholz, Vice President Engineering and Anne Murray, Vice President Airline Relationships & Public Affairs have announced their retirements from Vancouver Airport Authority effective September 30. These three individuals collectively help build YVR into the airport and workforce we are today. We want to thank Michele, Don and Anne for their combined 60+ years of service to YVR. 

Richard Beed will join Vancouver Airport Authority as Vice President Human Resources on October 5. In addition, Gerry Bruno will move to Executive Advisor reporting directly to the CEO and will scale back to his part-time 3.5 days per week. Gerry graciously pitched in full-time over the last 6 months to help us through this unprecedented time. In this new capacity, Gerry will focus on strategic advocacy for key government policy changes that support the Airport's business recovery objectives, including Foreign Trade Zones. Gerry will also continue as the Airport Authority's representative on the Future Borders Coalition where he serves as Co-Chair of the Board of Directors and Executive Director and CEO for that organization.

The Executive will be working with the team to develop a new purpose-built organizational structure which we will announce by November 30, 2020.

President & CEO
