Rosemary Vassiliadis on Wednesday was named the new director of the Clark County Department of Aviation. She replaces Randall H. Walker, who is retiring as director effective June 3.

Vassiliadis has served as the department's deputy director since December 1997.

"Rosemary is widely respected, here at home as well as elsewhere around the world, thanks to her many years of exceptional leadership at one of the nation's busiest airport systems," Clark County Manager Don Burnette said.

Vassiliadis, 55, will become the 11th person and first female to head the department, which oversees McCarran International Airport and four smaller airports in southern Nevada.

Vassiliadis' appoint is scheduled to be ratified by the Clark County Commission on March 5.

"I have great respect for this organization and the important role it plays in support of our local economy and the tourism industry that drives it," Vassiliadis said. "Over the past 15 years, I've worked with many great people and have been a part of an amazing success story here at McCarran. Our airports are very unique, and I understand the challenges we'll face, as well as the resources and strategies we'll employ in order to maintain our status as a global leader in the aviation industry."
