Joe Lopano

CEO, Tampa International Airport, Tampa

Tampa International Airport sees more than 22 million passengers a year on average. It has almost 700 aviation authority employees and 7,000 employees on airport property. The airport is a major economic engine for the Tampa Bay community, generating an annual impact of $14.5 billion. Lopano has been CEO for about 10 years. “I love walking around the airport, meeting with all of my team members and interacting with them. It’s been tough being apart from them during the pandemic,” he says.
