JFKIAT"S DE GRAAFF TO BE NEW CEO OF BRISBANE AIRPORT
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has announced that former executive and current president and CEO of New York-JFK's Terminal 4 operator, JFKIAT, Gert-Jan De Graaff, will lead the company from June 2018.
De Graaff will replace the long serving Julieanne Alroe who will retire from the company at the end of the financial year.
BAC chairman, David Peever, said an extensive international search had been conducted to identify the right candidate to lead Brisbane Airport through what is expected to be an historic growth phase.
“Brisbane Airport is currently Australia’s third busiest airport by passenger numbers and aircraft movements and will, with the completion of its new parallel runway in 2020, be the best positioned airport in the country for domestic and international growth,” enthuses Peever.
“Gert-Jan shares these values and we are confident that this, combined with his extensive international experience, will enable BAC to deliver on its considerable potential as a catalyst for economic growth for the city, region and nation.
Peever said Alroe would leave the airport well-positioned for the future.
De Graaff says that he is delighted to be returning to Brisbane Airport, where he held senior executive roles including general manager commercial services and general manager strategic planning and development between 2007 and 2012.
“The opportunity to lead Brisbane Airport at such a critical and exciting time was too good to ignore,” he remarks.
“Returning to Brisbane, a place I came to love in my five years there, is also very exciting. The city, indeed the whole of Queensland, offers so much and I look forward to helping the airport play its vital role in the growth of business, trade and tourism,” Mr De-Graaff said.
De Graaff is currently president and CEO of JFKIAT LLC, which operates JFK Airport’s international Terminal 4, which handled just over 22 million passengers last year. He has been in that role since 2014.
Prior to that he held a variety of senior roles in Brazil, Stockholm-Arlanda Airport in Sweden and Amsterdam Schiphol in the Netherlands.
BAC’s current CEO and MD, Julieanne Alroe, who has led the airport since 2009, is retiring from the company at the end of June 2018.
