NASAO Announces Greg Pecoraro As New CEO

Washington DC (February 13, 2020) – The National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO) has selected Greg Pecoraro as its new President and CEO. In this role, Pecoraro will work closely with the NASAO Board of Directors and other state aviation leaders to fulfill the organization’s mission to represent the interests of the states and the public before Federal policymakers.

Pecoraro has had more than 25 years of government relations and management experience in the aviation and transportation sectors, both in government and associations. He served as vice president of government affairs for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, as assistant secretary for Administration at Maryland Department of Transportation, as well as other key leadership positions in the public and private sectors. In these roles, he has worked extensively across the Aviation community, with policymakers at every level of government, as well as other association leaders.

John Binder, Chair of NASAO’s Board of Directors and Alaska’s Deputy Commissioner for Aviation announced Pecoraro’s appointment, saying “NASAO’s Board of Directors is very pleased and excited to welcome Greg Pecoraro as our new President and CEO.  Greg is an experienced and effective association executive with significant experience in aviation advocacy, and a deep familiarity with NASAO and State Aviation. We are confident that his abilities and enthusiasm will serve NASAO well as we work together to promote a safe and efficient aviation system nationwide and in our states.”

In accepting the appointment, Pecoraro said “I am very excited to be joining NASAO. Our national aviation system makes possible so much of what we value in America, and state aviation agencies are critical to the safe and secure functioning of that system. I look forward to helping NASAO share the excitement and importance of Aviation, and to fostering a better understanding among policy-makers and the public of its tremendous value to their communities.”

Pecoraro will step into the role the week of NASAO's Washington Conference, February 26 - 28, 2020.
