About Webber Air Cargo
Webber Air Cargo is an Austin, Texas-based S corporation that principally provides cargo-related airport planning services. Michael (Mike) Webber is the company’s president and sole full-time employee, so clients can be confident of who actually performs the work for which they are paying.
Webber founded the company in late 2001 after leaving LeighFisher Associates. Webber temporarily sidelined the business in 2017 upon joining Landrum & Brown (L&B) but left L&B in 2020 to resume operating Webber Air Cargo as an independent practice.
More about Mike
Michael (Mike) Webber was raised in the Kansas City area but currently lives in Austin, TX. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS and his MBA at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA.
After graduation from Tulane, Webber managed a New Orleans-based trade association dedicated to trade development with Latin America and then worked in international banking for First Commerce Corp. in New Orleans where he was a U.S. EXIM-Bank certified lender.
Webber began his aviation career as the Director of Marketing & Economic Development for the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority in Jackson, MS. He then returned to his native Kansas City where he led the Marketing Department of the Kansas City (MO) Aviation Department. Webber considers having applied experience in airport management to be integral to his success as an airport consultant.
Observant readers will recognize that Kansas City, New Orleans and Austin comprise three of America’s most important music cities. Webber worked in record stores throughout high school and college, losing none of his passion for music in the intervening decades. Webber’s “down time” at conferences and on other business travel often involves thumbing through used records in some local store and free evenings find him catching local talent in music clubs. Cargo colleagues have joined Webber’s excursions to Jazz clubs in Paris, to hear oud orchestras in coffee shops in Jordan and classical orchestras in India.
