Massport Fills Two Mission-Critical Posts


Massó is Director of Community Relations; Doolin Becomes Chief Development Officer


 

BOSTON -- The Massachusetts Port Authority today announced the appointment of two highly qualified individuals to fill key posts in the senior administration of the Authority, which owns and operates Boston Logan International Airport, Hanscom Field, Worcester Regional Airport, the public cruise and container terminals in the Port of Boston and real estate holdings in the city.

“I am delighted to announce the hiring of Jose Masso and the promotion of Jim Doolin,’’ said Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn. “Having skilled and strategic people in the positions of Director of Community Relations and the Chief Development Officer is incredibly important to the success of Massport.’’

José C. Massó III, 62, lives in Boston and has a distinguished career in civic engagement and community activism. He began his public service career in 1983 in the Governor’s Office of Community Services in the Dukakis administration and has held key community affairs posts at the MBTA, Northeastern University, and the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration. He has had a successful career in broadcasting and was inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2010. Massó is fluent in Spanish and skilled in cross-cultural communications.

As Massport’s Director of Community Relations, Massó will direct the development and implementation of programs designed to lessen the impact of Massport facilities on its neighbors. The Community Relations Department is the first point of contact for the Authority with Community groups and it responds to the general public’s request for information, concerns, and complaints; leads community meetings and makes presentations to community organizations on Massport’s policies, plans and programs and other complex subjects.

James P. Doolin, 59, came to Massport in 1995 as a deputy director for Planning and Urban Design and rose steadily during his career. After the untimely death of Lowell Richards, Doolin became Acting Chief Development Officer and was named to the position permanently this month.

The Chief Development Officer provides overall management and administrative direction on the Authority's transportation and master planning, current and future real estate and facility development projects, asset management, ground leasing activities and other new ventures in accordance with the Authority's policies, procedures and priorities. Doolin has a master’s degree in regional planning from the University of Pennsylvania.

Massport is a financially self-sustaining public authority whose premier transportation facilities generate more than $8 billion annually, and enhance and enable economic growth and vitality in New England. No state tax dollars are used to fund operations or capital improvements at Massport facilities. 

Boston Logan, 15 minutes from the intersection of Route 128 and I-90 and five minutes from downtown Boston, serves as the gateway to the New England region and offers nonstop service to 72 domestic and 31 international destinations and in 2012 handled 29.3 million passengers.
