Dick DeVos has been appointed to the Federal Aviation Administration’s Management Advisory Council.

The president of the Windquest Group in Grand Rapids and former CEO of Ada-based Amway joined six other new appointees on the council. 

They are leaders in public and private sector transportation:

  • Philip Trenary, former CEO, Pinnacle Airlines
  • Brian Wynne, CEO, Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International
  • William Ris, former SVP, government affairs, American Airlines
  • Donna McLean, former U.S. Department of Transportation assistant secretary for budget and programs and CFO
  • Jeffery Shane, former U.S. Department of Transportation assistant secretary for budget and programs and CFO
  • Huntley Lawrence, director, Aviation Department, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey

"These new members bring extensive experience and over a century of combined expertise in the operation, business and policy of aviation that will be invaluable to improving the FAA," U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said. 

"Each individual is a widely respected leader in their field and brings an established record of achievement that will help ensure our airspace remains one of the safest and most efficient in the world."

FAA MAC

The council, or MAC, was created by the Federal Aviation Reauthorization Act of 1996.

Members serve three-year terms in a voluntary capacity and retain their public and private sector positions.
