The Administration has nominated Ricardo Duenas as a Guam International Airport Authority board member.  If approved by the Legislature, Duenas would replace Edward Untalan who resigned Feb. 12 for personal reasons.
“I want to thank Mr. Untalan for his hard work during his tenure on the GIAA board,” said Governor Eddie Baza Calvo. “I wish him the best moving forward.”
The Governor reached out to Mr. Duenas who accepted the nomination to the airport board. Duenas has previously served on the Guam Economic Development Authority board, and has a strong background in finance in the private sector including his current position as a trustee with Robert J. Torres Trust. He also has worked as a Western Sales Trading chief financial officer, and as an Ernst & Young senior tax manager, among the other positions.
“The airport has made a lot of improvements in the last few years, going from three to about 15 signature airlines in 5 years and being a strong support for our growing tourism industry. Also, they continue to work on their expansion projects that will allow them to accommodate increase air traffic,” the Governor stated. “It’s a critical time for the airport and we need to ensure there is continuity. I want to thank Mr. Duenas for accepting the nomination. I have every confidence he will be an asset to the board and management of the airport.”
Duenas will complete Untalan’s three-year term, which is June 16, 2014 to Feb. 21, 2017.
