With over 30 years of ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing in the avi­a­tion and trans­porta­tion in­dus­try, Evans will be re­spon­si­ble for the over­all man­age­ment of the com­pany and its goals tar­get­ing the North Amer­i­can mar­ket

Ginger Evans has been named chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of US-based Reach Air­ports, an air­port man­age­ment JV owned by Mu­nich Air­port In­ter­na­tional and The Car­lyle Group’s CAG Hold­ings.

Bring­ing over 30 years of ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing within the avi­a­tion and trans­porta­tion in­dus­try, Evans is tasked in not only over­see­ing the over­all man­age­ment of the com­pany but will also fo­cus her ef­forts on build­ing the firm’s North Amer­i­can port­fo­lio. The lat­ter will also in­clude estab­lish­ing a strate­gic part­ner­ship with air­port ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tions ac­tive in that mar­ket.

“We are very happy to wel­come Ginger on board. Her decades of ex­pe­ri­ence in lead­er­ship po­si­tions, her ex­ten­sive knowledge and her ex­cel­lent net­work in the avi­a­tion in­dus­try make her the per­fect fit for this im­por­tant po­si­tion,” said Dr Ralf Gaf­fal, man­ag­ing director of Mu­nich Air­port In­ter­na­tional.

“To­gether, we will drive our pres­ence in the North Amer­i­can mar­ket and of­fer air­ports im­prove­ments in op­er­a­tions, man­age­ment and cus­tomer ser­vice.”

Over the course of her ca­reer, Evans has held a num­ber of key lead­er­ship po­si­tions in both gov­ern­ment and avi­a­tion en­ti­ties. This in­cludes serv­ing as a chief avi­a­tion en­gi­neer at CH2M HILL, as well as a principal for Trans­porta­tion at Carter & Burgess

Evans’ most re­cent role was serv­ing as the com­mis­sioner for the Chicago De­part­ment of Avi­a­tion, a job in which she ne­go­ti­ated agree­ments for $10.4bn of cap­i­tal im­prove­ments at O’Hare In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Reach Air­ports’ new CEO also sits a num­ber of boards, such as the tech­ni­cal com­mit­tee of Ainda En­er­gia & In­fra­struc­ture and the Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee of the Trans­porta­tion Re­search Board.

Evans pre­vi­ously served as the com­mis­sioner for the Chicago De­part­ment of Avi­a­tion.
