Randy Babbitt, SVP of Labor Relations at Southwest Airlines, participated in last year’s World Low Cost Airlines Americas by giving a presentation on the subject of the importance of culture and employee engagement.
Prior to joining Southwest and after confirmation by the U.S. Senate, Randy served as the FAA’s sixteenth administrator from June of 2009 through December 2011. He came to the FAA from Oliver Wyman, an international management consulting firm where he served as partner.

A veteran pilot and internationally recognized expert in aviation and labor relations, Randy was no stranger to the FAA. He had been a member of the agency’s Management Advisory Council since 2001. In that capacity, he provided guidance to the FAA Administrator on a variety of topics, ranging from air traffic modernization to regulatory policy. Randy was chairman of the council from 2004-06.
