In This Episode:

It takes a lot of technology to operate a major international airport each day, from the infrastructure you can see to the behind-the-scenes business and security systems. Mary Griffith and Jake Potter catch up with RDU CIO Chuck McFall to learn about how it all works. Meanwhile, as summer travel kicks off, find out how the airport is “turning up the dimmer switch” to meet passenger demand.

McFall has a Ph.D. in Business Administration from Columbia Southern University, a M.A. in Applied Organizational Behavior from Tusculum College and an Executive Certificate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
