In addition, he will be accountable for ensuring that the FBO is positioned to provide all necessary services to customers, tenants and other users of the related facilities.

Airport Director Adam Wolf commented on the appointment.  “Fletcher joined our KOSU family approximately two years ago and has advanced through progressively more responsible positions to include the airport operations manager and interim FBO general manager,” he said.

“In that short time, he has played a vital role in upgrading equipment and manuals, as well as enacting numerous enhancements to the customer experience.”
