About Our 2020 Honoree

Jane Garvey is the North America Chairman of Meridiam Infrastructure, a global investor and asset manager specialized in developing, financing and managing long-term public infrastructure projects. Ms. Garvey is a recognized global thought leader in business and highly regarded former U.S. government official.

During her career in public service, Ms. Garvey served as the 14th Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) from August 1997 to August 2002. She was the first FAA administrator to serve a full five-year term and also the first female to lead the agency. As Administrator of the FAA, Ms. Garvey guided the agency through many safety and modernization milestones. She led the FAA through the extraordinarily formidable events of September 11, 2001 with compassion and assurance of mission. She also pioneered the FAA through Y2K preparation and implementation and is known for her deliberate collaboration and ability to bring all stakeholders together.

Ms. Garvey is recognized for her breadth of experience at all levels of government. Ms. Garvey served as Acting Administrator and Deputy Administrator of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Among her accomplishments at FHWA, she conceived and developed the Innovative Financing Initiative—appropriately named GARVEE bonds, enabling states to use federal highway funds more effectively. Most of the funds-management methods tested by more than 30 states under this initiative were later enacted into law and helped finance important infrastructure projects around the country. Before leading the FHWA, Ms. Garvey was director of Boston’s Logan International Airport. From 1988 to 1991, she was Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Public Works under Governor Michael Dukakis.
