Renato “Ren” Camacho is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Akron-Canton Airport following a unanimous appointment by the Airport Authority’s Board of Trustees in 2018.

Ren’s core responsibilities include leading a 50 member team of airport employees, strategic planning for the future of the airport, and directing all capital improvement programs. Specifically, Ren ensures the airport is a vital, economic engine that increases economic activity and pride to Northeast Ohio.

Ren has over 25 years of professional experience in the aviation and transportation engineering sectors, specializing in program management and customer service. He has implemented over $300M of federally- and locally-funded projects for initiatives including: runway safety area improvements, master plans, lease negotiations with airlines, new business development initiatives, and major airport infrastructure projects.

Prior to his Cleveland tenure, Ren spent 14 years with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, working in various capacities to complete major capital infrastructure projects including: World Trade Center site, George Washington Bridge, NY metro airports, Port Authority Bus Terminal, and Holland/Lincoln Tunnels. 

Throughout his career, Ren has strived to identify the operational and business aspects of long-range infrastructure, facility planning, and development initiatives. He possesses a sound knowledge of FAA requirements including CFR Part 139 certification, airport security plans, airport planning, noise compatibility, lease agreements and grant assurances. 

Ren received his Master’s Degree in Transportation Planning & Engineering from Polytechnic Institute of New York University and Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
