About Fraport USA
Founded in 1991, Fraport USA (formerly Airmall) was the first to launch street pricing and branded retail in-terminal in the U.S., creating the foundation for modern American airport concession development.
Today, the model is known for creating a competitive environment among independent shop operators and the creative, best-of- breed concepts it produces in terms of service, quality, variety, and unprecedented control for the airport. Over the years we have adapted our roles within our airports but never forgot that a positive experience for the traveler means a positive view of the airport and the airline. Fraport USA is a wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary of Fraport AG and as such a member of Fraport Group, one of the largest airport operators worldwide.
The Vice President will be responsible for the leasing, marketing and ongoing retail and merchandising support as well as being an integral asset in monitoring, benchmarking and ensuring that all subtenants adhere to the principles of high quality and value. The Vice President will also formulate and deliver a Retail Strategy through which the development and management of retail facilities and services will maximize profit levels from commercial activities while enhancing the highest standards of customer service and value for money. Fraport USA is a service-oriented organization with an accomplished staff. This is very much a servant-leader position.
