CRW Airport Director and CEO Dominique Ranieri has been named one of the aviation industry’s Top 40 under 40 leaders by Airport Business. The Top 40 Under 40 showcases the top talent and leading thinkers in the aviation industry who are driving success and innovations for the future.

In 2015 at the age of 24, Dominique Ranieri represented the Central West Virginia Regional Airport Authority in litigation. She began working for the Airport Authority in 2017, starting as the Airport’s Director of Marketing & Air Service Development and working her way up to the CEO role. Her hard work has led to many additions (and schedule adjustments) to service at CRW Airport—notably, service from CRW to Orlando International Airport (MCO) on low-cost carrier, Spirit Airlines.

Before being named CEO, Ranieri served as Assistant Airport Director for nearly two years. Her appointment to her current position was made official in September 2022. She is the first woman to lead West Virginia International Yeager Airport.

CRW airport is proud of Director Ranieri’s industry-advancing contributions and greatly appreciates her dedication to the CRW team and our passengers. Congratulations to Dominique and each of the 2022 winners!
