Professional Experience

Kevin P. Healy joined Campbell-Hill in October 2011, as a Senior Vice President from AirTran Airways and was named President & CEO in March of 2017. At AirTran, where he was Senior Vice President of Marketing and Planning, Mr. Healy was pivotal in implementing the airline’s successful low-cost business model.  Starting in 1999, he directed all aspects of AirTran’s commercial and strategic planning and was part of the team that led the turnaround and eventual sale of the company to Southwest Airlines.

 

Mr. Healy led AirTran’s innovative strategy of providing low fares and quality service on all of its routes.  He was integral to keeping AirTran’s costs among the lowest in the industry, while offering a quality product featuring business class cabins, new planes equipped with XM Satellite Radio and Wi-Fi on every flight, assigned seats, and a frequent flier program.  Under Mr. Healy’s leadership, AirTran developed and adapted strategies, as needed, to maintain profitable growth in a highly competitive and increasingly complex market.  As a result, in January 2010, AirTran was awarded the prestigious Market Leadership Award from Air Transport World (ATW), a leading monthly magazine covering the global airline industry.

 

Mr. Healy developed AirTran’s growth strategy with service to over 70 cities across the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean.  Mr. Healy has extensive experience in both conventional and emerging travel distribution systems.  He was named by Business Travel News to the list of “Most Influential Executives in Business Travel” in 2005.

 

Mr. Healy offers Campbell-Hill’s clients the benefit of his senior level airline perspective gained through his thirty years of wide-ranging airline experience involving route strategy, scheduling, pricing, revenue management, distribution, sales, public relations, and government affairs. 

 

In addition to airline and airport clients, Mr. Healy has testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary, provided expert assistance to the U.S. Department of Justice and Competition Bureau of Canada, addressed numerous Federal, State and Local officials and worked with various law firms and clients on airline anti-trust issues.  Mr. Healy has presented papers and addressed numerous aviation organizations including Airlines for America (A4A), Airports Council International (ACI), and American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE).

 

Mr. Healy has gained insight into economic development and public-private partnerships through service to numerous civic organizations.  Mr. Healy was appointed by Governor Jeb Bush to the Florida Commission on Tourism, and served on the Commission as well as the Board of Directors for Visit Florida from 2002 to 2011.  Mr. Healy served on the Board of the Orlando-Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Board of Directors for Central Florida Partnership.  Before joining AirTran, Mr. Healy held management positions at US Airways and Piedmont Airlines involving pricing, revenue analysis, and yield management.
