You may have heard a new voice on the ground frequency at ISM and that voice belongs to our new Operations Coordinator, John Behrendt. John is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force with experience in a variety of roles at different airports from different regions. He was the Airfield Maintenance Supervisor at San Antonio International Airport in Texas where he oversaw the daily maintenance functions and lead a team of 15 maintenance personnel. He utilized his maintenance experience in a dual capacity along with Airport Operations responsibilities at the Green Bay-Austin Straubel International Airport to maintain FAA and TSA safety and security compliance standards.
