Gary Bartek served as TIACA Chairman in 2005 – 2006 and with Board of Directors administered the 23rd International Air Cargo Forum and Exposition in Calgary, Canada. He aided the membership and the industry by his Board of Director service from 2002 to 2009.
During his career over three decades in the air cargo industry, he served as Marketing Manager, Cargo and Economic Development at the Kansas City Aviation Department and Director of Cargo with the Capital Region Airport Authority. Within that time frame, he participated in the global expansion of the air cargo product across global borders and worked for the continued importance of air cargo to the supply chain system. He was especially interested in adding value to the supply chain by linking air cargo with on-airport logistics and business park development.
“With a look back at years 2005 and 2006, It was always a pleasure to work with the many talented members of our Board and membership to tackle the Industry issues on Security, Facilitation and All-Cargo Liberalization at the time.”
Gary is retired and with wife, Beverly resides in Kansas City, Missouri.
