Executive Program Management

A Better Way for Airport Owners to Manage Complex Capital Development Programs

The Executive Program Management model provides owners with a small team of experienced, executive-level leaders who are fully integrated with the airport’s executive staff to improve the owner’s project bandwidth and assist in strategic planning, implementation, and execution of a successful multi-year program. The EPM team reports directly to the owner and oversees firms providing construction and support services on the ground. The team’s only motivation is the owner’s best interest and success.

Paslay Group founder and CEO R. Clay Paslay developed the Executive Program Management model and introduced it to the airport industry in 2007. Watch as Clay explains the origin, philosophy, and principles of Paslay Group’s revolutionary approach to EPM in aviation in the video below.

The Executive Program Management Model

EPM relies on a small team of experienced airport development leaders who are seamlessly integrated with the airport’s executive team. A typical EPM team includes a senior Executive Program Manager, a Project Controls Manager, Construction Manager, and Design Manager, depending on the airport’s needs. Additional roles are based on the specific needs of the airport and program.
