Asst. Chief Pilot
Northern Region


Assistant Chief Pilot for the Northern Region Matthew Higginbotham took home the 2016 Presidential Award. To learn a bit more about Matt, we spoke with Chief Pilot Mark Cicali.

Why do you think Matt was so deserving of the Presidential award?

Matt is a dual qualified pilot that makes personal sacrifices in support of the company, the bases, and the pilots he serves. He leads by example never asking more of his pilot staff than he is willing to do.

What do you appreciate most about working with Matt?

His willingness to help anyone in need regardless if it is a pilot, medical crew, or technician. He is always available to lend a hand.

Using just one word, how would you describe Matt to other people?

Passionate.

Sean Russell also had some nice things to say about Matt:

Matt really models exceptional leadership skills and the core values of REACH. He works incredibly hard and is constantly looking for ways to improve himself as a professional and REACH as a company.
