EVANSVILLE, IND. – Evansville Regional Business Committee (ERBC) President Peter J. Paradossi is the newest member of the airport authority’s governing board of directors.

Paradossi was recently appointed to the Evansville-Vanderburgh Airport Authority District (EVAAD) Board by Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, succeeding long-time board member Pete Popham who recently concluded his 15-year board tenure.

“Prior to being named ERBC President in 2016, Mr. Paradossi celebrated a distinguished 25-year public affairs career in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry, most notably for Bristol-Myers Squibb and Mead Johnson Nutrition,” said EVAAD Board President J.P. Englebrecht. “He continues to be a trusted adviser for regional business relations and broad strategy issues, and with his prior airport board experience, he brings with him the expertise and understanding of airport business operations and development.”

Paradossi returns to the board after serving earlier from 2009 to 2012.

“Pete adds to the depth of knowledge on the airport’s board at a time when we are rebounding from the pandemic and continually carving out a strong, sustainable future for Evansville Regional Airport,” added EVV Executive Director Nate Hahn.

Paradossi, as president of regional organization ERBC comprised of CEOs and senior members from some of Southwest Indiana’s largest businesses, leads the advancement of economic growth and prosperity through the advocacy, collaboration and engagement of key investments and initiatives.

“Evansville Regional Airport is one of our region’s most valuable assets,’ said Paradossi in taking up his new role of board member. “EVV’s pre-pandemic growth was extremely impressive with current progress trending strong, and I look forward to working with my board colleagues and the airport’s management team to build on this success, as we continue rallying around industry challenges and new growth opportunities for public and private aviation.”

Concurrent with Paradossi’s appointment, Paul Green was reappointed to a second three-year term also by Mayor Winnecke. Paradossi and Green join Engelbrecht, Rev. Adrian Brooks and Gina Hermann on the airport authority’s mayor and county commissioner-appointed board.
