Kim is an aviation leader with vision, strong ethics, and a driving sense of accountability. Recently completing 13 years at the helm of Denver International Airport, Kim was responsible and accountable for the airport’s success, increasing the regional economic impact of the airport, partnering with airlines to assure their profitability and continued growth at DEN and preparing the airport for the future. She oversaw the development of the commuter rail terminal that now connects DEN to downtown Denver, the 500 room Westin Hotel and 44 additional aircraft gates.

Kim grew the 5th largest airport in the US (pre-COVID) from an $840 million to a $1.2 billion enterprise, while keeping costs to airlines competitive. She oversaw the increase in cities serving DEN from 170 to 214 and the addition of numerous international flights. She navigated the airport through COVID, keeping the airport financially strong while helping all stakeholders. As a result, DEN recovered quickly and in 2021 was ranked the 3rd busiest airport in the world.Her leadership resulted in DEN being selected as the best large airport in the first-ever Wall Street Journal US Airport Rankings. She has received many awards for her work and most recently was inducted into the Colorado Tourism Hall of Fame.

She holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell, did graduate work at the University of California Berkeley Haas School of Business and lives in Dana Point, California.
