“I am thrilled to announce that Andy Moore will continue to pilot our Airport well into the future with his steady leadership and unprecedented understanding of local aviation,” Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo said in a statement. “Andy did an incredible job of bringing our transformational airport renovation project to fruition, all while managing day-to-day airport operations with minimal impact on local travelers during construction.”

In the last year, Moore oversaw the completion of the $79 million Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization Project at the airport. He previously served as deputy airport director for four years.

In addition to overseeing day-to-day operations at the airport, Moore will oversee enhanced air service development efforts to attract new flights and expanded seat capacity for destinations out of Rochester.

Moore is a certified member of the American Association of Airport Executives and has earned industry certification from Airport Council International in the areas of concession management and airport security. He is an active participant of the New York Aviation
Administration Legislative Advocacy Day and current serves as NYAMA treasurer.

Moore replaces former airport director Michael Giardino, who took a new position in Virginia in
October 2017.

“I’m confident that Andy’s experience and expertise will help our airport continue to attract more visitors, more jobs and more investment to Monroe County moving forward,” Dinolfo said.
