In recent years, Martin has served in executive roles supporting the P3 development of JFK Terminal 6 and LGA Terminal B; as the Chief Development Officer leading more than $8 billion in capital improvements for Los Angeles World Airports; and as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA).

He has executive-level understanding of large organization development, airport operations, public safety, stakeholder relations, and strategic planning with a commitment to economic development.

"Paslay Group is fortunate to have attracted an airport industry leader like Steve who is incredibly well respected and gifted in his ability to assist airports in refining their long-term vision and developing strategies and sound business practices to position them to serve the traveling public far into the future," said R. Clay Paslay, Paslay Group's chief executive officer and managing partner.

"Our firm comprises a wide range of airport executives with extraordinary expertise in complex capital program development and business strategy who genuinely enjoy sharing that knowledge with our clients. Steve Martin adds another dimension of strength to our bench, and we are looking forward to seeing the impact he will have on our client's success."

Martin said his interest in Paslay Group's expertise began during his tenure as Chief Operating Officer, then Chief Development Officer for Los Angeles World Airports. Paslay Group provided LAWA Executive Program Management services for the LAX airfield and Terminal Modernization Project during that period.

 "My interest was enhanced once I further understood Paslay Group's broader reputation for excellence in client services," Martin said. "I re-engaged the Paslay Group while I served as the Executive Project Manager for a new JFK passenger terminal, and it was a pleasure to work alongside this talented and committed group of professionals who thrive in challenging, fast-paced environments and are entirely focused on helping their clients succeed.

"I look forward to assisting the team at a number of airports of various sizes with unique challenges through this new opportunity."
