Liliana Rambo, CM, CAPP, is the Houston Airport System’s (HAS) Chief Terminal Management Officer.

As HAS' Chief Terminal Management Officer, Rambo is responsible for the overall passenger experience of George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) by focusing on:

The Terminal Management Division plans and implements strategic policy, and provides day-to-day guidance and direction to assure passengers traveling through the terminals at both commercial airports experience a five-star quality of service, including every touchpoint: the ticketing counters, security checkpoint, hold rooms, concessions, FIS, baggage claim, and restrooms.

Skytrax also named Hobby Airport the Best Regional Airport in North America two years in a row and recently garnished the coveted Skytrax award of Best Arts Program worldwide. In addition, Liliana manages the SCM division, which procures all goods, contracts and services for all three airports and administration for the Houston Airport System.
