The Baliles administration was nationally known for a commitment to transportation infrastructure.

Prior to joining ACI-NA, Principato was a Trade and Transportation Specialist for the Law Firm of Hunton & Williams, where he worked on a wide variety of issues including the negotiation of international air service agreements and alliances and the development of a new global standard for aircraft noise.
