Former LaGuardia CEO to advise the US division of Ferrovial Airports
Ferrovial Airports has announced the appointment of former LaGuardia Airport CEO, Lysa Scully, as an independent senior advisor to its US division.
Scully, who runs her own US advisory firm, had a distinguished 33-year career as an innovative leader at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
As former CEO of LaGuardia, the 20th largest airport in the US, she led a team of 400 people in delivering unprecedented positive change to the customer experience for its 30 million annual passengers.
Indeed, under Scully’s leadership, airport passenger volumes grew to record levels and investment in the airport reached historic highs as she led the gateway through its transformative $9 billion redevelopment programme.
Before her role at LaGuardia, Scully spent more than ten years as a senior executive at the Port Authority’s aviation headquarters, directing programmes for customer excellence, landside and parking, concessions, and strategic planning for its five airport system.
“I am delighted to be able to announce that Lysa is part of our team,” enthuses Jorge Gil, CEO of Ferrovial Airports. “Her unique experience and expertise managing and leading the development of large and complex airport infrastructure will be key to support Ferrovial Airports’ growth strategy in the US market.”
Scully, principal and president of LL Aviation Advisors, says: “I am excited to work with Ferrovial Airports US on opportunities to provide exceptional customer experiences for airport guests.”
