Peterson elected to ATSG’s board of directors

Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) has elected Laura Peterson to its board of directors, effective June 14.
Peterson brings 22 years of experience in the global aerospace industry at The Boeing Company, where she held a series of executive positions in aircraft sales, international business development, global strategy, government relations and homeland security.
Her most recent role was Vice President, China business development for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, where she was responsible for Boeing’s largest commercial market.
Randy Rademacher, board chairman of ATSG, said Peterson’s knowledge of the global commercial aircraft marketplace, and the diverse range of responsibilities she has held, make her an ideal addition to ATSG’s Board.
Rademacher said: “ATSG has achieved great success from a business model built on cost-efficient medium body Boeing aircraft, creating superior value for its customers.
"I know Laura will bring exceptional insights as we plan the next phase of the company’s growth as both a lessor and operator of converted freighters throughout the world. Her extensive public aerospace company experience and understanding of the strategic considerations and challenges associated with a complex, highly regulated industry make her an excellent addition to the Board.”
Peterson increases the Board’s membership to seven. She holds a B.S. in Industrial Engineering from Stanford University and an M.B.A. from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
