FWA Executive Director Leaves For CMH

Mon Mar 19, 2012 11:37 pm


At the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority (FWACAA) board meeting today, it was announced that FWA's executive director Torrance "Tory" Richardson is leaving for the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, the operator of CMH and LCK. His new position with CMH/LCK is VP of Government Affairs and Strategy. Richardson's direct replacement at the FWACAA is Scott Hinderman, who was previously FWA's ops director.

I can think of a lot of positive things that happened under Tory's watch since he took over in 2004. Even in turbulent times, he delivered results:
-9E expanded their FWA MX base (2006)
-G4 entered FWA (2007)
-NW (now DL) launched FWA-MSP service (2008)
-Ivy Tech Community College opened an airframe & powerplant school at SMD (Smith Field, also run by the FWACAA; 2008)
-CUTE system installed at all FWA passenger gates (2011)
-FWA's dining and shopping got a significant upgrade (2011)

I wish Tory the best of luck in Columbus; I flew in and out of CMH once back when Skybus was around and was pleased with their facilities.
