George Uriesi Director of Airport Operations
George Uriesi was born in Lagos on 08 August, 1968. His career spans more than 18 years, mostly in airline and airport operations as well as both the safety and economic regulation of the industry. Having graduated from Bendel State University Ekpoma (now Ambrose Alli University) in 1991 with a BA (Hons) degree, he served with the then Nigerian Airports Authority and worked for ADC Airlines PLC until he moved to South Africa in February 1996 to join multi-national consumer products' company, Procter & Gamble South Africa, as Logistics Manager.
He returned to the aviation industry 3 years later to play key roles in the institutional reform and transformation of South Africa's air transport industry, joining the executive team of the South African Civil Aviation Authority, first as Executive Manager for Aviation Safety Promotion and later General Manager: Aviation Safety.
In August 2001, he joined Airports Company South Africa as Group Manager for Safety and Compliance, with responsibility for regulatory compliance, operational safety, environment and emergency management. In December 2004, he was appointed General Manager of Cape Town International Airport where he led the massive transformation of the airport in preparation for the 2010 FIFA World Cup tournament, whilst establishing it as the top international award winning airport in Africa.
George has played prominent professional roles as a member of the International Air Services Council as well as of the Economic Regulating Committee for Airports and ATC of South Africa. He has also been actively involved in the work of Airports Council International (ACI) both in the Africa Region and as a member of the ACI World Standing Committee on Airport Safety and Technical Matters.
He also played prominent business roles as Chairman of the Cape Town Tourism Marketing Board as well as a member of the Boards of the Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Cape Town Festival.
Prior to his appointment at FAAN, George was a US-certified Business Coach and Airport Management Consultant, based in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. He holds several professional qualifications, including the Aviation Safety Management Certificate of the University of Southern California, the ACI Airport Executive Leadership Certificate of Concordia University, Canada and the Executive Leadership Certificate of the University of Cape Town, amongst others.
He joined FAAN in December 2009 as Director of Airport Operations.

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.
