Joe Campolo, Managing Partner of Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP and recognized business leader, has joined the Long Island MacArthur Airport Advisory Board at the invitation of Town of Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter. Designated an Official Metro Airport by the FAA, MacArthur is one of the top 110 airports in the country and is a critical component of the Ronkonkoma Hub project as well as the greater Long Island economy.

Campolo is Managing Partner of Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP, a premier law firm recently recognized by Forbes as a Top Corporate Law Firm in America. The firm’s headquarters sits at the entrance to MacArthur Airport, giving Campolo a unique perspective on the airport’s opportunities and challenges.

In addition to running his own business and advising the who’s-who of Long Island about theirs, Campolo has kept an unyielding focus on growing the economy and investing in the community. His insight and no-fear attitude have led to some of the most significant economic initiatives on Long Island today, including the renaming, reinvestment, and rezoning of the Long Island Innovation Park at Hauppauge (LI-IPH). This experience caught the attention of Supervisor Carpenter, with whom Campolo has worked on the HIA-LI’s LI-IPH Task Force.

“I’m delighted to have Joe on the Airport Advisory Board,” Supervisor Carpenter said. “His business sense, his experience moving economic development projects forward, and his focus on making our beloved Long Island as strong as it can be all make him a great asset.”

With travel opening up from its pandemic slowdown, Campolo is focused on seizing this opportunity to promote the airport for more business travel, as well as assisting the Town with their quest to bring in new carriers. “As we’ve learned from the important work we have been able to accomplish so far with the LI-IPH Task Force, a common element needed for robust economic development in a geographic area is access to transportation hubs,” said Campolo. “Long Island MacArthur Airport is a critical part of Long Island’s economy and ecosystem and I look forward to helping Supervisor Carpenter and the Town of Islip enhance the vitality of this asset.”
