A4A Names Veteran Industry Advocate
Vaughn Jennings as Vice President, Communications
Since joining A4A in November 2012 as Managing Director for Government and Regulatory Communications, Jennings has played an integral role in successfully developing, driving and advancing the industry’s public and media relations priorities on a wide range of issues important to A4A’s member airlines. Prior to joining A4A, Jennings was a long-time Capitol Hill aide, holding several positions with senior Members of Congress, including House Leadership.
As Vice President, Jennings will oversee the department’s advocacy campaigns and its two managing directors, with a focus on further expanding A4A’s strategic communications initiatives and earned media outreach.
Jennings assumes his new role effective immediately and will report to Todd Burke, A4A’s senior vice president, communications.
“Vaughn is an expert communicator, who completely understands the intricacies of the airline industry and Capitol Hill,” Burke said. “He is a vital part of our current communications department and by stepping into this new role, his talent and leadership skills will only continue to grow, to the benefit of our A4A team, our member airlines and the traveling public.”
Jennings received his Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Wake Forest University.
America needs a cohesive National Airline Policy that will support the integral role the nation’s airlines play in connecting people and goods globally, spur the nation’s economic growth and create more high-paying jobs. A4A works collaboratively with the airlines, labor groups, Congress and the Administration to improve air travel for everyone.
