April 29, Ottawa – The Canadian Airports Council has announced that, in addition to his duties as Saskatoon Airport Authority President and CEO, William A. Restall has been named acting president of the Canadian Airports Council.

Currently the association's chair, Mr. Restall has served on the board of the CAC since 2004, and will act in an interim capacity after the departure of outgoing president and CEO, Jim Facette.

"Under Jim's tenure, the CAC matured into a modern trade association, a voice for Canada's airports community," said Mr. Restall. "In the coming months the CAC will be turning its attention to recruiting a new full time executive to lead the organization. In the meantime the CAC will continue to serve as the voice of Canada's airports in Ottawa and play an important role in regulatory and legislative affairs."

Mr. Restall has been president and CEO of Saskatoon Airport Authority since 1999. One of the first executives accredited by the International Association of Airport Executives, Mr. Restall has 36 years experience in air transportation. In addition to his role at the CAC, Mr. Restall is a director of the Saskatchewan Aviation Council, and a director of the Northwest Chapter of the American Association of Airport Executives.
