PHL Announces Kate Sullivan as Deputy Director of Strategic Partnerships

The City of Philadelphia Division of Aviation, which owns and operates Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and Northeast Philadelphia Airport (PNE), has announced the selection of Kate Sullivan for the position of Deputy Director of Strategic Partnerships.

Sullivan will provide strategy and oversight of the core business-to-business and business-to-consumer marketing functions for PHL and PNE, including Air Service Development, Marketing & Branding, and Guest Experience. She will consolidate external and passenger-facing functions to build new capacities, programs and initiatives that market the airport across its core stakeholder audiences.

"During her tenure, Kate has proven a thoughtful, committed and empowering leader,” said Jim Tyrrell, Chief Revenue Officer. "I am confident that she will continue to excel in this new capacity.”

Sullivan joined the Division of Aviation in 2019 as the Director of Marketing and Branding. Prior to joining the airport, she was the Vice President of Digital Engagement at Harte Hanks, focusing on product innovation, social media strategy and content marketing. She is a member of the Airport Council International-North America (ACI-NA) and the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE).

Reporting to the Chief Revenue Officer, Sullivan will engage airport stakeholders, city and community organizations and trade groups, while developing partnerships to promote the PHL gateway brand and the Greater Philadelphia regional brand across air travel, tourism, and hospitality.
