Julieanne Alroe recognised for outstanding contribution to the airport industry
Former Brisbane Airport Chief Executive Officer Julieanne Alroe has been recognised for her contribution to the airport industry at the AAA’s National Airport Industry Awards last night.
Ms Alroe won the Outstanding Contribution award for her groundbreaking work launching one of Australia’s biggest infrastructure projects and furthering Brisbane Airport’s connection with the community.
AAA Chief Executive Officer Caroline Wilkie said Ms Alroe was an obvious choice for the award.
“Julieanne has made a significant difference to our industry, especially in her home state of Queensland,” Ms Wilkie said.
“She has led a real transformation at Brisbane Airport, getting its $1.3 billion runway project underway and creating stronger connections with the wider tourism industry.
“Her commitment to ensuring the airport was an active part of tourism and trade development for her state has had a real and lasting impact on the Queensland economy and community.
“Julieanne also led the airport’s engagement with the community, forming strong partnerships with local arts organisations during her tenure.
“We are delighted to name Julieanne as this year’s outstanding contribution winner as she continues to advocate for the wider infrastructure industry in her new role.”
Ms Alroe has worked in the aviation industry for 40 years and was Brisbane Airport’s Chief Executive Officer from 2009 – 2018.
She retired from the role in June and is now the Infrastructure Australia Chair.
