Many of the nation’s leaders began as interns in their chosen field. Mary Barra was a student intern at an automotive factory and 30 years later became CEO of General Motors. Oprah Winfrey interned at a local television station and now is a media mogul and television star. Steven Spielberg got invited to do a little work at Universal Studios as a teen-ager and became an Oscar-winning filmmaker.
As part of the National Employee Forum, PWC leadership meets on a quarterly basis with FAA Headquarters executives, including at times the FAA Administrator, to discuss policies and issues impacting FAA employees.

I grew up with four brothers, and we all watched and played baseball in the summer. Over time, we realized that the game was much more than whether a batter could hit or a fielder could catch. The game had layers of strategy built in and even people who didn’t take the field were instrumental in a team’s fate.

He can focus on tackling the challenges of the daily operation while the team’s general manager focuses on broader strategies that impact the future like trading players and negotiating contracts.
