Hilarie Grey – Chief Executive Officer

Most recently having served as Managing Director of Corporate Communications for Allegiant, Hilarie brings a wide-ranging background and more than 20 years’ experience in public affairs, marketing and government relations for high-profile organizations in Southern Nevada. A lifelong animal advocate, in 2019 she joined the volunteer Board of Directors for the Nevada SPCA, where as a director and later as the board’s president, she worked to rebuild the organization in the face of numerous challenges, including relocating the shelter to a newly constructed, healthy, and safe location in 2021.

Since starting her career in Nevada with the City of Las Vegas and Clark County, Hilarie has been involved with community issues ranging from education, health care and growth, to transportation and economic development. She led public affairs at Harry Reid (then known as McCarran) International Airport and UNLV during transformational periods and oversaw communications during institutional transitions for Touro University Nevada, Nevada Cancer Institute and AARP Nevada.

At Allegiant, in addition to leading all strategic communication for the Las Vegas-based national airline and travel company, Hilarie also shaped the company's corporate giving strategy, including developing national partnerships with Make-A-Wish and the American Red Cross, as well as aviation education programs and regional service dog organizations, among others.
