Julie Stewart
Airport Manager
Ballina Shire Council

Julie Stewart has just recently taken up the role of Airport Manager at Ballina Shire Council in January 2020 and was the Manager Airport and Aviation Development at Tamworth Regional Airport since early 2013. There she was involved in aerodrome management activities, airline business development, leasing, commercial developments, terminal and airfield upgrade projects, asset management and airport planning. She is a member of the LEMC, the Australian Institute of Company Directors and is currently studying her MBA.

She moved from Sydney Airport after 15 years where her role honed not only her operational knowledge but her planning and contingency as well as emergency management skills. During her time in Sydney she was part of the SA2000 project, Sydney Airport Privatisation, Sydney Olympics & Para Olympics facilitation, and 9/11 responding activities. She was part of the project management team for the common-user integration of the T2 terminal following the Ansett collapse.

Julie studied her B.Sc. (Jap. Lang.) at Griffith University and has over 10 years hotel management and hospitality experience after working in the Whitsundays in the 80’s and 90’s.
