AAR appoints new corporate vice president of strategy & business development

AAR has appointed Steven B. Harrison as President of AAR Airlift, which is headquartered in Palm Bay, Fla., and has operations around the world. Harrison joined Airlift three years ago and, as Chief Commercial Officer, was instrumental in expanding Airlift’s capabilities and geographic presence.

“Steve has the right skill set to lead Airlift’s expansion,” said Chief Operating Officer of Expeditionary Services Timothy J. Romenesko. “He will be responsible for continuing to ensure the highest levels of quality and safety throughout the operation, managing key customer and regulatory relationships, and driving operational and financial performance.”

Prior to joining AAR, Harrison was President and CEO of National Airlines, following a distinguished career in the U.S. Air Force that included posts as Commander of the 89th Airlift Wing (Air Force One) and deputy director of operational logistics at the Pentagon. Harrison holds a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering from the Air Force Academy and two master’s degrees from Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar.
