[Halifax, Nova Scotia] The board of directors of the Atlantic Canada Airports Association is pleased to announce the appointment of Tammy Priddle as president.
Ms. Priddle has served as president and chief executive officer of Deer Lake Regional Airport Authority since early 2020. She has a master’s degree in public administration management and more than twenty-five years’ experience working in the public sector.
“We are honoured that Tammy has taken on this volunteer role of president,” says Nadia MacDonald, executive director of the association. “Having joined Deer Lake right before the pandemic struck in 2020, Tammy has deftly managed the airport’s affairs as well as being actively involved with the ACAA.”
Other members of the association executive are Vice-President Johanne Gallant, president and CEO of Fredericton International Airport Authority, and Secretary-Treasurer Doug Newson, CEO of Charlottetown Airport Authority.
According to MacDonald, there are both opportunities and challenges for Atlantic Canada’s airports over the next few years: “Air travel is critical to Atlantic Canada’s economy and public enthusiasm for air travel is returning post-pandemic. But the return to pre-pandemic passenger volumes is inconsistent across the region and we struggle with regional connectivity that meets traveller expectations.”
