About the Speaker

Alan Feinberg

Alan Feinberg (BS Tufts University, MS University of Southern California) has spent the bulk of his distinguished 34-year government career as a program manager.

In November 1998, Alan transferred to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to head the Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System (STARS) product team. STARS, with an estimated life cycle cost of nearly $2 billion, is the prime element of the FAA's Terminal Air Traffic Control System modernization program. Under Alan's guidance, a once troubled program gained a new life; the team successfully commissioned the first full system at an operational site (Philadelphia) on schedule in 2003. For this, Alan was honored with an FAA Acquisition Award for contributing to the efficiency of the National Air Space.

After a field detail in Seattle, Washington and a number of short term Headquarters assignments, in 2004, Alan became the Senior Safety Engineer for the FAA's Office of Terminal Services. In this role, Alan is responsible for implementing the internationally recognized Safety Management System within the FAA's Terminal domain. In recognition of his efforts, Alan has been given an Air Traffic Organization (ATO) Leadership Award and the ATO Vice President's Award for Excellence.
