How has your life experience made you the leader you are today?
Travel has long been a personal and professional passion of mine. I believe that as citizens of the world, we share much in common and can learn from one another. Diversity of perspective leads organizations to better answers. This philosophy serves me well as I am honored to lead an organization with 22,000 employees from more than 70 countries and 1.7M passengers from more than 180 countries.
