    New positions: Bermuda Skyport has increased its full-time staff at LF Wade International Airport to 49

Eleven people have been hired by Bermuda Skyport as the company that operates and maintains LF Wade International Airport continues to boost its workforce.

Skyport also took on nine new staff last year, while 27 staff members previously transitioned to the company from the former Department of Airport Operations.

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

Aaron Adderley, president of Bermuda Skyport, said: “One of our goals in building Skyport was to have a full work force necessary to deliver a better product and service at the airport.

“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.

The technical department, which is responsible for the construction project, including design, engineering and overall construction management, added three new members to its team: Je’Shae Pace, project coordinator and one of the Aecon Bermuda interns; Moe Kamleh, technical manager; and Kahnae Bean, environment, health and safety co-ordinator.

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.

Michael Darrell was hired as a billing specialist and replaced a consultant brought in during the transition to incorporate new finance systems. His responsibilities include invoicing the airlines, managing revenue and compiling passenger traffic statistics.

While Chelsea Ray was hired as a project administration trainee for one year to assist with projects and office administration.
