I want to offer a hearty “Welcome” to both Brian Ryks and Keith Kaspari as they start new chapters in their aviation careers within the state of Michigan.
Brian Ryks, AAE, former executive director of the Duluth (Minn.) Airport Authority, has accepted a new job as executive director of Gerald R. Ford International (GRR) in Grand Rapids, Michigan , effective early July. He succeeds Jim Koslosky, AAE, who recently retired after leading GRR for many years. We’re excited to have Brian make the move from the northern climates to the west coast of Michigan and wish him well at GRR.
Keith Kaspari, former Airport Manager of Sawyer International Airport (SAW), Marquette, Michigan, has made the move to “south of the bridge” as we say here in Michigan, to take the position of Deputy Executive Director at the Capitol Regional International Airport (LAN), in Lansing, Michigan. I’ve personally had the pleasure of working with Keith for a number of years while he was at Sawyer and look forward to working with him in this new position.
Congratulations to both of you on these exciting career moves!
