The Regional Airline Association (RAA) promoted two long-time association executives with the naming of Scott Foose as senior vice-president–operations and safety, and Faye Malarkey Black as senior vice-president–government affairs.
“These promotions are well-earned since for more than a decade Scott and Faye have helped guide RAA and our member airlines through perhaps the most challenging times in our industry’s history,” explained RAA president Roger Cohen. “The RAA Board of Directors and regional airline professionals nationwide have come to rely on their counsel, expertise and commitment to member service. They are cornerstones of the RAA team, we couldn’t have achieved all we have without their contributions, and with the stakes rising, we’re counting on them even more going forward.”
Since 2000, Scott Foose has worked with DOT, FAA and other stakeholder organisations on a wide range of safety, policy and regulatory issues, while Malarkey Black has worked on virtually every legislative, advocacy and communications issue touching regional airlines since joining the RAA in 1998, in doing so becoming a credible and trusted advocate for the industry.
