It is with profound sadness that we announce that one of our Fellows, Armando Silva, passed away April 23rd. 


Armando was a founding member of American Airlines Decision Technologies (AADT) in the late 1980‘s and rose up the ranks to eventually become the Managing Director of Operations Research at AA until his retirement in 2012. He was influential in the early days of applying OR to customer loyalty, pricing, sales, and revenue management. Armando made significant contributions to AGIFORS as long-time chair of the OR Manager’s Study Group and was a continuous and active participant in AGIFORS from the late 1990s until his retirement in 2012. He also supported many of his staff as speakers and contributors to AGIFORS over the years.


Armando influenced dozens of colleagues through his mentoring and will always be remembered for his sense of humor and ability to diffuse tension and make work “fun.” He will be sorely missed by his family, friends and the entire airline OR community.
