Uriesi Receives NPOM Award | JetLife NigeriaJetLife Nigeria

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), Mr. George Uriesi, was honoured with the prestigious National Productivity Order of Merit (NPOM) award by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on 15 August 2013.
The event took place at the NICON Luxury Hotel, Abuja and also saw the conferment of the award on other notable Nigerians who had made significant contributions to the country's development in their various fields of endeavour. Mr. Uriesi was recognised because of the significant improvement he has brought to the management of Nigeria's airports since his appointment as the Managing Director of FAAN in October 2011. His unique management style, which has given the Authority's staff an unprecedented sense of belonging, has enhanced service delivery at all airports managed by FAAN. This is in addition to his transparent commitment to the implementation of government's Transformation Agenda in the aviation industry, including infrastructural development through the Airport Remodelling Project and other new policies such as Aerotropolis and the development of perishable cargo exports through designated cargo airports. Mr. Uriesi holds a BA (Hons) degree from the then Bendel State (now Ambrose Alli) University, Ekpoma and began his working career in 1992 at ADC Airlines, after his NYSC at the then Nigerian Airports Authority. Mr. Uriesi returned to Nigeria in January 2010 to become FAAN's Director of Airport Operations.

Mr. George Uriesi, MD, FAAN
In his remarks at the event, the Managing Director of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), George Uriesi, said the remodelling of the Benin Airport Terminal had entailed the expansion of the floor of the arrivals and departures halls to enable them to handle growing passenger traffic, especially at peak periods. He added that more offices, shops, toilets and other related terminal facilities such as a modern VIP lounge had been added. This, he noted, was in addition to the installation of modern x-ray screening machines, CCTV, check-in counters, conveyor belts and other facilities comparable to the best in the world. While thanking President Goodluck Jonathan for showing passion and support for the transformation of Nigerian airports, he assured all stakeholders that other airports at various stages of completion would be wrapped up in record time. Mr. Uriesi also thanked Governor Oshiomhole for his tremendous support, which had seen the project through from conception to completion.

George Uriesi, Managing Director, FAAN
As a graduate in Languages and Literary studies from Ambrose Alli University in Ekpoma, aviation was not an obvious career choice for George Uriesi. However, over the last 20 years he has gained a worldwide reputation as an industry leader. He has worked in the public and private sectors on three continents and is a former General Manager of Cape Town International Airport, helping transform South Africa's airports into world-class facilities. He is a member of the International Air Services Council, the World Standing Committee on Airport Safety and Technical Matters, and the Africa Regional Board of Airports Council International, as well as Chairman of the Cape Town Tourism Marketing Board. Uriesi returned to Nigeria in 2010 to become Director of Airport Operations at the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN). He became Managing Director last year. In this exclusive interview, he talks about the agency's recent restructuring and his plans to ensure that Nigerian airports meet international standards.
