A Tennessee man has been selected as the newest director of the Idaho Falls Regional Airport. Mayor Jared Fuhriman announced Monday that Craig H. Davis, who holds a bachelor's degree in Airport Management from Middle Tennessee State University will succeed Len Nelson in the post this fall.
Davis most recently served as Airport Manager for the Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority in Knoxville, Tenn. Nelson will retire from the Idaho Falls position Aug. 10.
Idaho Falls Director of Municipal Services Craig Lords will serve as interim airport manager until Davis takes the helm.
According to a news release, Davis was selected following a national search and careful consideration of a very strong group of finalists. In a news release, Fuhriman said, "Mr. Davis will bring with him a wealth of experience and leadership to his new position and I am certain that our regional airport will continue to be the premier transportation hub in eastern Idaho."
Davis said, "I am excited for the opportunity to serve as the next airport director and to continue the success of the airport. My family and I look forward to making Idaho Falls our home."
