NBAA's board of directors announced on May 30 the selection of Shelley A. Longmuir as the next president of the organization. NBAA says Longmuir has more than a decade of experience in domestic and international aviation, most recently at United Air Lines, where she was senior vice president of international/regulatory and governmental affairs. Longmuir will be appointed by the board on June 24. She will succeed Jack Olcott.
"Shelley brings tremendous talents to NBAA and was selected from among nearly 100 highly qualified candidates," said Don Baldwin, vice chairman of the board and chairman of the selection committee. "Her ability to work effectively with people across the political and professional spectrum, her proven track record of leading effective coalitions, and her natural optimism, make her the right person at the right time for NBAA."
While at United Air Lines, Longmuir led a team of more than 50 attorneys, economists and lobbyists responsible for implementing United's regulatory and governmental affairs agenda and dealing with government agencies and regulatory authorities in the United States and worldwide. Before joining United in 1993, Longmuir held positions with the U.S. Departments of Transportation (DOT), Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Justice (DOJ).
