JULY 24, 2015: Phil Brown, executive director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA), has been selected to serve as vice chairman of the Gateway Airports Council (GAC) for 2016. The GAC is an international travel advocacy group within the U.S. Travel Association that works with U.S. Travel to advance federal policies and programs that will make the travel experience more efficient and help to attract millions of new visitors to the United States. Brown will work alongside chairman Sean Donohue to advocate for improvements to the entry process, expand the Visa Waiver Program and improve airport infrastructure. Brown will lead the GAC policy agenda into 2016 and perform the Chair’s duties when he is not available. “It is gratifying to have the opportunity to help bring awareness to the challenges we’re facing as airports,” Brown said. “I look forward to working with other gateway airports and U.S. Travel in an effort to build relationships and provide a stronger, more unified voice for the entire industry.” “The Aviation Authority is pleased to play a leadership role at such a crucial time in the growth of our industry,” said GOAA Chairman Frank Kruppenbacher. “With increasing passenger traffic and capital improvement projects currently underway at Orlando International Airport, Phil Brown is well-suited to provide valuable contributions to our airport colleagues.”
