His FAA record of management HIGHLY recommends him for this work
BEST OF LUCK!!!
Macquarie Capital, the corporate advisory, capital markets and principal investment arm of Macquarie Group, named Michael Huerta a senior advisor. In his new role, Huerta will provide insight to the firm and its clients and partners to build on existing initiatives and seek new opportunities in U.S. transportation infrastructure.
Huerta recently completed a five-year term as administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, where he was responsible for the safety and efficiency of civil aviation in the U.S. Before being named as administrator, he served as the FAA deputy administrator. Prior to joining the FAA, he was president of the Transportation Solutions Group at Affiliated Computer Services (now Conduent), and held senior positions in the U.S. Department of Transportation in Washington, D.C.
He served as the executive director of the Port of San Francisco from 1989 to 1993, and was commissioner of New York City’s Department of Ports, International Trade and Commerce from 1986 to 1989.
Congratulations to Macquarie on adding the Honorable Michael P. Huerta to its team. As noted here, the former Administrator has shown his talent to manage complex technology projects, but perhaps more impressive and more relevant to Macquarie, his leadership in supporting his staff to adopt and adapt to innovative practices like SMS, the new Part 23 certification and other advances to the FAA will be useful in the private sector.
Macquarie Capital is an advisory, capital markets and principal investment arm of Macquarie Group.

One would expect that the new senior adviser (ethically there is a limitation on what he can do) will lead Macquarie into any number of exciting opportunities in transportation, such as:
⇒The obvious arenas
- US airport privatisation is set for a boost in 2018, but regulatory clouds gather
- Be cautious about airport privatization, but it should not be precluded
- Conservative/Libertarian Views on how Airport Infrastructure might benefit from Privatization/Deregulation
- PRIVATIZATION IS NOT A UNIVERSAL SOLUTION FOR ALL AIRPORTS, BUT THE REVIEW PROCESS IS USUALLY BENEFICIAL FOR DEFINING THE FACILITY’S COMMUNITY POSITION
- the Trump federal grants to spur state, local, and private investment, like:
- rural infrastructure projects, including transportation, broadband installation, and water and waste treatment programs.
⇒Huerta’s broad range of experience as well as his creative mind may take him to other frontiers.
Clearly, Macquarie saw the opportunity with Administrator Huerta. One would expect that he will take his talents to other enterprises.
