ACI-NA Announces Retirement Of Deborah McElroy

Matthew Cornelius Named Executive Vice President

Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA) has announced that longtime Executive Vice President Deborah C. McElroy will retire from the organization, effective Dec. 31. The organization has named Matthew J. Cornelius (pictured), current vice president of air policy, as its new executive vice president, effective Jan. 1. Following her retirement, McElroy will continue to serve ACI-NA in an advisory capacity for special projects.

“Everyone at ACI-NA – including me – has greatly benefited from Debby’s guidance on all facets of aviation during her years of service to the North American airport industry,” said ACI-NA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke. “She has been a trusted advisor to our members and a passionate advocate for shaping sound aviation policy throughout her career. Her leadership will be missed, but we wish her well in her retirement.”

McElroy joined ACI-NA in 2006, as Senior Vice President of Government Affairs after serving seven years as President of the Regional Airline Association (RAA). Named ACI-NA Executive Vice President in 2007, McElroy oversaw the safety and security, environmental and technical operations departments, coordinating policy and regulatory issues to effectively advance the airport industry agenda.

“Debby’s deep understanding of aviation and her ability to bring stakeholders together have made us a stronger industry,” said Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport CEO and ACI-NA Board of Directors Chair Candace McGraw. “Her significant contributions to our industry have well-positioned us for continued success as we prepare for the next generation of air travel, especially as Matt steps into this well-deserved role.”

Prior to joining RAA in 1987, McElroy was employed by the U.S. International Trade Commission as their senior aerospace industry analyst and the U.S. Department of Labor as an international economist. A graduate of the University of Maryland, with a degree in economics, McElroy has more than 30 years of experience in aviation, regulatory, and trade issues.

“Debby’s commitment to advancing airport industry priorities is unparalleled,” said Greater Asheville Regional Airport Authority Executive Director and ACI-NA Board of Directors Vice Chair Lew Bleiweis. “She has diligently worked on behalf of U.S. and Canadian airports, helping them to serve their customers and communities. We thank her for her contributions to our industry, and we look forward to working with Matt to further advance the industry.”

Cornelius joined ACI-NA in November 2012, and is currently vice president of air policy. He monitors and advises on U.S., Canadian and international aviation regulations and issues including air service development, international bilateral air service issues, airport/airline business relations, passenger facilitation and leads the organization’s airport-related innovation program. He also serves as the committee secretary to the U.S. International Air Service Program, the Facilitation Committee, the Large Hub Airport Committee and as secretary to the Air Service Committee.

“We are delighted Matt will be stepping into this important role at ACI-NA,” Burke said. “Time and time again, Matt has proven himself to be an invaluable resource for ACI-NA and our members. As one of the brightest and fastest rising stars in our industry, Matt’s vast industry experience and ability to bring stakeholders together will serve our organization well.”

Prior to joining ACI-NA, Cornelius served as airline affairs manager with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. He also held roles in Frontier Airlines’ finance and commercial strategy departments, and worked in airport operations at Denver International Airport. He began his career with the aviation department of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, where he held various positions in customer service and airport operations.

Cornelius is a graduate of Villanova University, with a degree in business administration, and also holds an MBA from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
