Out of the 20 new hires, 17 are Bermudian and two are spouses of Bermudians.

“Our new hires have joined a wonderful team made up of dynamic, energetic and talented individuals who are passionate about what they do. We’re excited to have them join the team and help us to successfully complete the redevelopment project.”
The maintenance division hired six new members including Joseph Butterfield, building maintenance superintendent; Wendell Dottin, airport technician plumber; Brent Searle, specialist electrical systems technician; Justin Talbot, HVAC technician; Tyler Fox, carpenter; and Shaqir Richards, mechanical technician.

Carrie Thatcher has joined the commercial team as commercial manager. She is responsible for optimising revenue performance and ensuring optimum customer satisfaction for internal and external customers of the airport. Strategising for future commercial development including enhancements to existing services and development/implementation of new services also falls under her portfolio.
