Mead & Hunt awarded AAAE’s Corporate Cup of Excellence

Mead & Hunt, Inc. received the 2011 American Association of Airport Executives’ Corporate Cup of Excellence award at the Association’s annual conference and exposition in Atlanta last month. Since 1986, AAAE has been awarding the Corporate Cup of Excellence to companies that support airports and the airport management profession. AAAE surveys all airport members and asks them to nominate companies that fit this description. This year, Mead & Hunt had the most nominations.

The firm’s aviation services leader, Andy Platz, accepted the award on Mead & Hunt’s behalf, along with colleagues Jon Faucher, Tom Schnetzer and Tim Callister. During the awards ceremony, AAAE highlighted Mead & Hunt’s long record of providing innovative solutions to its clients.

“In the 110-plus years since this company opened its doors, it has helped shape the world—designing airfields, building bridges, expanding terminals, planning communities, attracting air service, defending the environment,” said AAAE Chair James Bennett, AAE. “It ranks in the top 500 design firms and top 25 airport consulting firms in Engineering News Record and was named one of the best places to work by CE News. With more than 450 team members, this firm challenges itself to provide its clients insight, ideas and innovations that are changing the way our industry works.”

Mead & Hunt has been a corporate member of AAAE for many years and is active in many of the Association’s events as well as in several of the regional chapters.

“Mead & Hunt is very proud to receive this prestigious award,” said Andy Platz, Vice President and Group Leader of Aviation Services for Mead & Hunt “It’s a great honor to be recognized by the industry we serve and care so much about. Through our association with AAAE, we have grown our business and enjoyed greater opportunities to provide technical expertise to the industry.
