Greater Moncton Airport Names New CEO

It’s a new CEO for the Moncton airport.

Officials from the Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport announced Thursday that Courtney Burns will be its new president and CEO.

Burns will replace Bernard LeBlanc, who is retiring from the role.

“[Burns’] strong working knowledge of all aspects of the airport’s business and operation and leadership skills will serve YQM well as it continues to grow as one of the region’s leading airports,” said Nancy Whipp, chair of the airport authority’s board of directors.

Burns began her career with Grant Thornton in Fredericton. She later landed a six-year job at the Atlantic Lottery Corporation before transitioning to being the airport’s director of finance and administration in 2017.

She also serves on the board of the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Moncton.

Burns assumes her role when the airport hosts its annual general meeting on May 16 — the same day LeBlanc begins his retirement.
