During his tenure as Airport Director, Mr. Martin oversaw one of the largest public works projects in the country at the time– the $2.4 billion SFO Master Plan, which included the construction of the now iconic International Terminal, a BART station linking the Airport to the Bay Area and a light-rail system connecting all terminals. Recent SFO accomplishments include the completion of Terminal 2, the first and only LEED Gold terminal in the United States, being designated by the San Francisco Business Times as the healthiest places to work among large companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and being named one of the best airports in North America by the international Skytrax survey.
John L. Martin has served as Airport Director of SFO since 1995. Prior to becoming Director, he served as the Airport’s Deputy Director for Business and Finance and has worked for the Airport Commission since 1981. He received a Masters Degree from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Lawrence University.
