Samuel Ingalls, , Barich Inc

Samuel G. Ingalls is a Principal Consultant for Barich, Inc. with over 30 years of experience in the aviation industry. Samuel recently retired as the Assistant Director of Aviation, Information Systems for Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS), serving the Clark County Department of Aviation (Department) for more than 30 years. He has worked in a variety of roles throughout his career, including several years in the Business group, working closely with air carriers and all other business entities on contractual matters. He is a graduate of Embry Riddle Aeronautical University where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Aviation Business Administration, with an emphasis in airport management. Samuel is a frequent user of the aviation system, holding a commercial multiengine pilot’s rating. During his tenure with the Department, Samuel led the efforts to implement many innovations, building a strategic and tactical knowledge of virtually all airport-based technology systems. He also played a leadership role in the industry with work on behalf of Airports Council International (ACI) (including chairing the Business Information Technology (BIT) Committee three separate times), International Air Transport Association (IATA), and Airlines for America (A4A). Among his many achievements, Samuel built an extensive experience set in common use systems through 25 years of active common use implementation and innovation. He initially led LAS to become the only major hub airport in the US that is 100% common use, and he continued to drive improvement in the common use space. Samuel was the first airport representative elected to lead an airline standardsetting committee, as he oversaw the comprehensive IATA and A4A rewrite of the common use (“CUPPS”) standard. Samuel also worked to innovate the baggage handling and tracking side of the business, playing a key role in setting the standard for RFID chips in bag tags and successfully implementing that technology. In Wi-Fi technology, Samuel led the airport’s early adoption of complimentary Wi-Fi for the customers and operational Wi-Fi on the ramp and in the terminal. He further worked with the Transportation Network Companies (Uber and Lyft) and other technology providers to implement a geo-fenced system that helped manage these operations, which were new to the airport environment. Samuel also worked with federal partners on innovation programs, such as CBP on biometrics and the TSA on many programs, including a ground-breaking partnership for the “Innovation Checkpoint.” EDUCATION &
