John Craig took over the chair position at the Nanaimo Airport Commission (NAC) at the commission’s annual general meeting Tuesday, April 8. Craig is succeeding Russ Burke, who had held the chair’s position since 2012.
Craig has been a member of the NAC board of directors since 2010 and was nominated to the board by the Cowichan Valley Regional District. His career spanned more than 25 years with major development companies and as president of his own company.
Craig’s experience in commercial development and his background as vice-chairman of the Edmonton Regional Airport Authority are valuable assets to the NAC, the commission states in a press release.
“It’s a great time to be stepping into this role,” said Craig. “With passenger numbers growing and the attraction of additional air carriers in the works, we are in a unique position to increase our revenue stream from responsible land development. I’m privileged to have the opportunity to chair the board for the next chapter at the Nanaimo Airport.”
