October marks the beginning of the City's fiscal year 2019 and Texas Aviation Partner's 9th year managing San Marcos Regional! To celebrate, we're shaking things up in our monthly newsletter.
Each month we send 527 people (as of today) a synopsis of what is happening at the airport. We try to be concise but informative. But sometimes we need space to dig in a little deeper on issues surrounding projects, funding, or general aviation news and how it may affect us all.
Here in the office, we'll take turns sharing relevant information in this welcome article.
We'll spend the first few months introducing ourselves to those we haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting in person.
October also marks my
9th year in the world of aviation. I graduated from the University of Texas (HOOK 'EM!) in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations and a minor in Business Foundations. I spent the first two years post-graduation learning valuable skills in project and property management at Lake Austin Marina.
In 2010, I walked into the old airport management office located in Berry's FBO building not really knowing anything about aviation or airports. Thankfully I was surrounded by a team that knew more about aviation than I could ever hope to learn.
I started by answering phones, doing the books, helping tenants with property needs, and slogging through 20+ years' worth of lease documents.
Over the past eight years, as our team has grown, I've been able to narrow my focus to leasing, business development, and marketing. However, being part of a small team means you'll still hear my voice over the radio doing FOD checks every week.
This month I'm excited to share with you the results of TxDOT Aviation's Economic Impact Study, which you'll find below. We know the improvements and the growth of the airport have had a ripple effect throughout the entire region and this study helps quantify what that means.
Thank you to all our tenants who submitted surveys and answered interview questions to assist in making the results of this study as accurate as possible.
As you read, please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have. Chances are, you're not the only one and it helps us to better address concerns and clarify the information in the next newsletter.
