MAC Names VP, Finance and Revenue Development

The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC), which owns and operates Minneapolis-St. Paul International (MSP),  has selected Samantha Porter to serve as vice president of finance and revenue development.

Porter will report to CFO Tim Simon and oversee the departments of finance, commercial management and airline affairs, and risk management/insurance. Collectively, these departments have responsibility for the MAC’s annual operating budget, financial planning, revenue generation from airline and concession agreements, and administration of risk and insurance programs.

Porter has more than 25 years of experience in the transportation industry. She currently serves as the chief operating officer of the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority (MVTA), where she directs the operations of Minnesota’s second largest public transit agency and is responsible for the agency’s operating and capital budgets.

“Samantha’s strong leadership skills and experience managing high-performing teams across organizational functions will be a great asset to the MAC,” said Simon. “Her collaborative, solutions-oriented mindset will be critical as air travel continues to recover and we position our airport system for future growth.”
