Airline Executives and Greenspan to Address NBTA

Dr. Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board (1987-2006), will be a featured speaker at the National Business Travel Association’s (NBTA) 40th annual NBTA International Convention, July 27-30, in Los Angeles.

This year’s program will also include international airline executives on an airline CEO panel to discuss the latest challenges and trends affecting the global industry. “With the growing challenges currently faced by the global airline industry, we though it was important to build on [last year's] success with a panel of current heads of major airlines from multiple countries.” Kevin Maguire, NBTA president and CEO, commented.

Featured on the panel, to be held on Tuesday morning, will be Richard H. Anderson, CEO of Delta Air Lines; Montie Brewer, president and CEO of Air Canada; and Willie Walsh, CEO of British Airways. The panel will be moderated by Emmy-winning journalist and editor Peter Greenberg of NBC's Today Show.
