After more than 25 years in the aviation industry, Thella Bowens, president and CEO of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, is still making her presence known both by her employees and the community.

Bowens carried into 2014 the same qualities earning her a Top Influential distinction in 2013. But substantial work expanding on her 2013 accomplishments — including the completion of the Green Build project expanding Terminal 2 at San Diego International Airport — was in need of continued leadership to make for a complete package in years to come. As 2014 came to a close, the Airport Authority began its public involvement phase in the development of its next master plan for Lindbergh Field, a plan Bowens and others had already been toiling over for years in the background.
