The Asheville Regional Airport Authority (ARAA) Board swore in its newly appointed At-Large board member during its regularly-scheduled February meeting.
Bill Moyer, a resident of Henderson County, was selected by the current board members to serve the remainder of the four-year term vacated by Chuck McGrady in February.
A native of Pennsylvania, Moyer spent his career as a partner in the Philadelphia law firm of Dechert, Price & Rhoads, practicing corporate, securities and utility law, and as CEO of C-TEC, a public telecommunications company. Moving with his family to Henderson County in 1990, Bill became active in community affairs and served on numerous civic and charitable boards. Bill served on the Henderson County Board of Commissioners for twelve years, eight as chair. He currently serves as Vice Chairman of the Board of Pardee Hospital.
“We are pleased to welcome Mr. Moyer to the Authority Board,” said David Hillier, Chairman. “Thanks to the hard work of our board and staff, we have celebrated some great achievements of late and I look forward to continuing that trend with Bill and the rest of the board in the coming months.”
The ARAA Board has overall financial and policy-making responsibility for the airport and is comprised of seven members. Three Airport Authority members are appointed by the Asheville City Council, three by Buncombe County Board of Commissioners, and the seventh is appointed by the six as the At-Large member from Buncombe or Henderson County. Authority meetings are currently held on the second Friday of the month and are open to the public.
