The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) plans to name Candace McGraw as its new Chief Executive Officer at a formal meeting later this week.  She will replace John Mok, who will be resigning.

"Candace's diverse experience and expertise in business development are vital to CVG as we all work to strengthen our airport and position it for future growth," said Michael L. Robinson, M.D., Chairman of the Kenton County Airport Board. "Candace is well-respected within our organization, the industry and the community and we look forward to her leadership at CVG."

McGraw, 48, joined CVG in 2009 as Chief Administrative Officer. She has held significant leadership roles throughout her career including Deputy Director at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, General Counsel for Cleveland City Council and legal counsel and Deputy Director of Charitable Gaming for the Ohio Lottery Commission.  She is a 2011 graduate of Leadership Cincinnati. 

McGraw earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Political Science from Duquesne University and Juris Doctor degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.  She and her husband, Joe, reside in Northern Kentucky with their family.

"Our airport is one of our region's most important assets and I look forward to leading our world-class team as we work with our airline partners and leaders throughout the region to position CVG for future growth," McGraw said. 

CVG has been rated the Best Regional Airport in North America and the top airport for "Customer Service Excellence" by Skytrax, a London-based air transport research organization. Earlier this month, CVG became the first airport in the country to receive SAFETY Act Designation and Certification from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), giving the airport the highest level of protections under the Act.
