HAI has appointed Matthew Zuccaro, right, as its president, to succeed Roy Resavage, who will retire at the end of a handover period. Zuccaro–who takes the reins on November 1–joins the association from his own consultancy firm.

During a 35-year career, Zuccaro has held executive-level and management positions with commercial, corporate, scheduled and public-service helicopter operators in the northeastern U.S. (He is a past president and chairman of the Eastern Region Helicopter Council.) During his tenure with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, he served in operations management positions at Kennedy International Airport and the Port Authority’s public and private heliports.

He is a former chairman of HAI and has been instrumental in several key HAI initiatives. Zuccaro has also served as chairman or member of many HAI committees, as well as of numerous industry research and task force groups.
