Ontario International (ONT) has named aviation industry veteran John Schubert as their chief financial officer.

Schubert comes over from the Tucson Airport Authority, where he was director of finance and helped modernize Tucson International’s (TUS) technology systems, procedures and policies, laying the ground for long-term growth following the 2008 recession.

Among his new responsibilities at ONT will be a focus on boosting non-aeronautical revenues.

“John understands that the flightpath to success for airports like Ontario is to keep costs low while providing first-rate facilities, services and amenities that airlines and air travelers demand,” says Mark Thorpe, CEO of the Ontario International Airport Authority, in announcing the appointment. “We look forward to utilizing his many talents to build on our work to make Ontario an appealing international gateway for Southern California.”
