The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on Thursday announced new leaders for four airports around the region:

  • Michael Moran at John F. Kennedy International
  • Rich Heslin at Newark Liberty International
  • Lysa Scully at LaGuardia
  • Ed Harrison at Stewart International

The new group of general managers combines for more than 100 years of aviation experience working for the Port Authority, it said in a news release.

In addition, the Port Authority said E.J. Mullins was promoted to program director at Atlantic City International, where he will oversee the agency’s efforts and its agreement with the South Jersey Transportation Authority to provide general manager services.

“Each of these highly competent and respected professionals owns an impressive and proven track record of success working for the busiest and most challenging airport system in the world,” Port Authority Aviation Director Thomas Bosco said in the release.  “I am confident they will help lead us through the challenges that lie ahead, deliver on the great promise our future holds and ensure our airports remain strong economic engines for the metropolitan region.”

The Global Gateway Alliance, which was established to address the major challenges facing the region’s airports, was pleased with the news.

“New York and New Jersey are home to the nation’s busiest, most complex airport system, and the Port Authority needs strong leadership to modernize our airports and improve the passenger experience,” Chairman and founder Joe Sitt said in a statement. “Global Gateway Alliance welcomes appointment of Ed Harrison, Rich Heslin, Michael Moran, E.J. Mullins, and Lysa Scully, who between them hold over a century of experience in the industry.  We look forward to working with them in their efforts to bring the region’s airport into the 21st century.”
