The board of directors of Winnipeg Airports Authority (WAA) announced Tuesday that president and CEO Barry Rempel will retire at the end of 2021.

Rempel gave his notice early this summer and a search is already underway for his replacement and is expected to be completed by 2022.

WAA says he has been with the authority since 2002 and brought new tenants to the airport, including Canada Post and General Electric. The largest project during his time was the new air terminal building which opened in October 2011.
