Roddy Boggus Named 2017 ACC Board of Directors Chair
Alexandria, VA – The Airport Consultants Council (ACC) is pleased to announce the election of Roddy Boggus, NCARB, AIA, of Suffolk Construction Company as chair of the 2017 ACC Board of Directors. Boggus assumed the position at the ACC membership meeting on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 during the 38th ACC Annual Conference and Exposition in Newport Beach, California.

Boggus is Executive Vice President of Aviation at Suffolk Construction, where he is responsible for all aviation-related construction services. Suffolk Construction is a national, privately held building contractor that provides preconstruction, construction management, design-build and general contracting services to clients in the aviation, healthcare, science and technology, education, government and commercial sectors. The company leverages innovative technologies and processes, such as virtual design and construction (VDC) and lean principles, to deliver its "build smart" approach for clients and trade partners.

"It is truly and honor to be elected to represent the Airport Consultants Council as the Chair of its Board of Directors for the 2017 year," Boggus said. "I am totally committed to growing ACC’s offerings and strengths of education, innovation, collaboration and delivering excellence in airport development, that have been the foundation of ACC. It is a great time to be a part of the aviation industry and not just an observer."

"Roddy is a true thought leader within the airport development community, and his background and perspectives will be a true asset to the organization," ACC President T.J. Schulz said of Boggus’ election. "Roddy’s term comes at a unique time, as airports seek new ways to deliver projects that foster creative financing, partnership and innovation. I look forward to working with Roddy on ensuring that as an organization, ACC will meet the needs of the industry in the future."

Roddy has three decades of experience in design, planning, implementation, and management of diverse aviation projects globally. He is familiar with issues facing the airport and airline industry in the US, Europe, Latin and South America, the Middle East, and Africa. He is a regular speaker at industry conferences on topics that range from airport planning and design, security-related technologies, partnering to alternative financing as well as the sometimes-frequent satirical aviation industry author of "Boggus Talk". Boggus is a registered architect in 11 states. He is a member of the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), and sits on the Board of Airport Consultants Council (ACC), International Partnering Institute (IPI), International Association of Airport Executives (IAAE), and the ACI Global WBP Associates Board.
