CLEAR appoints Howard Kass VP of Corporate Affairs to provide regulatory and government leadership
CLEAR has appointed transportation industry veteran Howard Kass Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs to build the company’s government, regulatory, and communications functions.
Kass served most recently as VP of Regulatory Affairs at American Airlines, and VP of Legal and Government Affairs at US Airways before its merger with American. Prior to that, he was Director of Regulatory and Economic Analysis at the Transport Security Administration (TSA).
“We are thrilled to have Howard on the CLEAR team as we push forward on our mission to create secure, frictionless experiences,” said Chairman and CEO Caryn Seidman Becker. “Howard’s industry experience will be an incredibly valuable asset and I look forward to partnering with him.”
“I am absolutely delighted to become part of CLEAR’s leadership team and I look forward to helping further expand CLEAR’s industry-leading capabilities in aviation and elsewhere,” Kass commented.
Last year CLEAR was issued a Notice of Allowance for a U.S. patent application relating to its biometrics-based boarding pass technologies.
