Saint John Airport - it's YOUR airport
From my interview with Derrick Stanford p
February 2017 in the Telegraph-Journal.
After an extensive international search,
Derrick Stanford was named president and CEO of the
Saint John Airport six months ago.
Derrick has spent his entire career in increasingly senior sales and marketing roles across North America, selling everything from complex business software solutions to beer, but he has always wanted to run a business and live in New Brunswick. The opportunity to become CEO of the Saint John Airport was the perfect opportunity.
From Montreal originally, Derrick graduated from UNB in '87 and worked in Toronto and Ottawa before moving back to New Brunswick. He has lived and worked in the province for over ten years, primarily in the technology sector.
