LOS ANGELES – (August 12, 2021) – Barbara Yamamoto, longtime airport communications professional, has joined the Flight Path Museum LAX Advisory Board following a unanimous invitation by the museum’s Board of Directors.

Yamamoto is vice-president of business development for PSM Squared, Inc., a woman owned business specializing in creating excellent guest experiences at airports during times of disruption, construction, and change.  She previously served for 20 years as a senior community relations and guest experience executive with Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), the City agency which operates Los Angeles International Airport.  Yamamoto retired from LAWA in September 2020 after 33 years of service with the City of Los Angeles.  

“We are privileged to welcome someone with Barbara’s credentials and expertise to our team,” said Agnes Huff, PhD, Flight Path Museum LAX President.  “Her strong ties to the airport community will be an invaluable resource as we work to enhance our visitor experience, educational outreach and community engagement.”

Yamamoto’s service at LAX was recognized with an Excellence in Marketing and Communications Award from Airports Council International – North America and a Public Service Team Accomplishment Award from the Greater Los Angeles Federal Executive Board.  She is a graduate of the University of California at Los Angeles and holds a master’s degree in journalism/public relations from the University of Southern California. She has served as adjunct professor in public relations at Loyola Marymount University.

“I’ve always had a special connection with Flight Path early on in my career, so it’s an honor for me to come full circle and serve on the Advisory Board.  I am grateful for this opportunity and for all that Flight Path brings to the airport community,” said Yamamoto.
