Rising to the Top While Creating Florida’s #1 Airport – With CEO/President Rick Piccolo | Episode 064

Stories of the lowly janitor eventually rising to become President are typically stories of myth. However, it does happen.

As you’ll hear today, my guest did indeed work his way up from the very bottom of the airport industry to the top over a brilliantly-managed 45-year career.

I am very pleased to welcome Rick Piccolo, President/CEO of this year’s Florida Airport of the Year which of course, is our own Sarasota-Bradenton Airport (SRQ).

In this episode, you’ll learn …

  • The one thing most people don’t know about Rick.
  • What most people would be surprised to know about running an airport.
  • How Rick reduced SRQ debt to now run a massive surplus.
  • What Rick and SRQ are doing to create educational opportunities for disadvantaged & minority students.

… and much, much more!

I’m so glad you joined us today. I hope you will listen, learn and connect!
