Anthony Norejko becomes president and CEO of the Canadian Business Aviation Association (CBAA), effective August 20, 2018. He joined the CBAA board in 2014 and most recently served as its vice president, member relations and development.
The CBAA explains Norejko made his mark as one of its directors by working to strengthen the association and its membership, which currently includes some 400 members located across the country. The CBAA pegs Canada’s business aviation sector as generating $12.1 billion.
Norejko played a pivotal role, explains the CBAA, in working with the Greater Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA) on slot restrictions, taking a critical position in establishing the CBAA/GTAA Technical Working Group.
“He is known as much for his entrepreneurial successes as he is for his business aviation expertise, and this is exactly what the association needs to drive itself – and take its members – to the next level,” said CBAA chair, Peter Bing.
The CBAA points to Norejko’s leadership in business aviation as director of aviation and chief pilot for Walmart Canada, and later as the principle of his own aviation-service company, CrewSked. He has also developed financial and strategic planning experience as founder of MoneyUpstream Coaching and, more recently, as vice president, strategy and operations, north, at FirstService Residential.
“Moving at the speed of business requires an engaged association,” said Norejko, about his CBAA appointment. “No one operator alone can influence the regulatory environment, gather consensus and influence change. I'm committed to engaging with our operator and associate members to ensure our industry is seen as a positive contributor and enabler to Canadian businesses.”
