Community Outreach

The airport's commitment to supplier diversity is a priority for RIC president and CEO Jon Mathiasen. A former member of the Diversity Committee of the International Association of Airport Executives, Mathiasen takes a hands-on role in diversity awareness training for management staff and ensures that the airport honors its policies with every program.

To recognize the airport's commitment to community outreach related to supplier diversity, the Metropolitan Business League of Richmond awarded the Capital Region Airport Commission the 2012 Vision of Excellence Award. The award recognizes businesses that promote economic prosperity in Virginia through leadership, education, training and advocacy for small, women-owned minority-owned businesses.
