Sean Williams Named VP, State And Local Government Affairs At A4A

Connecticut State Representative Steps Into Lobbying Role

The U.S. airline trade organization Airlines for America (A4A) has named Sean Williams as its new Vice President, State and Local Government Affairs. Williams comes to A4A with a distinguished record of public service, currently serving his sixth term as a member of the Connecticut House of Representatives.

At A4A, Williams (pictured)  will lead the State and Local Government Affairs team and play a central role in the U.S. airline industry’s effort to garner state-level support for a comprehensive National Airline Policy that benefits passengers, employees, businesses and local communities. “Sean’s extensive experience in state and local government makes him a great fit to lead A4A’s State and Local Government Affairs team, and we are thrilled to have him on board,” said A4A President and CEO Nicholas E. Calio. “Sean is widely regarded as a skilled legislator and leader, and his proven ability to navigate complex policy issues and build grassroots coalitions at the state and local level will be a tremendous asset to U.S. airlines as we continue our push for a National Airline Policy.”

Williams holds a prominent leadership role in the legislature, serving as the Assistant Republican Leader and Ranking Member of the Finance Committee. Additionally, he is also a member of the Connecticut State Bond Commission.

“I have seen first-hand the role airlines play in economic growth and job creation, particularly at the state and local level,” said Williams. “I am pleased to join the exceptional team already in place at A4A and look forward to leading the campaign in communities across the country, highlighting the value of the U.S. airline industry and the need for tax, regulatory and infrastructure improvements that would enable airlines to be sustainably profitable.”

Williams began in his new role on April 1. He will report to Sean Kennedy and Christine Burgeson, SVPs and co-leads of A4A’s Global Government Affairs.
