Jerry O’Sullivan’s retirement from his position as manager of the Greenbrier Valley Airport was reportedly submitted in executive session during a special meeting of the Greenbrier County Airport Authority on Tuesday, Feb. 24. O’Sullivan served as manager of the airport for 22 years.
O’Sullivan stated, while at a small reception held for him at The Irish Pub on Thursday, Feb. 26, that he and his wife, Ella, are now free to consider traveling opportunities after so many years of residing in one place. If another place lures them, he said, they may opt to move away. However, he adds, remaining here in the Greenbrier Valley is certainly not off the table. He said he hopes the airport will continue to serve the Greenbrier Valley as a valuable resource for business and personal travel pursuits.
Steve Snyder, a retiree from the military and a pilot, and knowledgeable of Federal Aviation Administration regulations, will serve as interim airport manager, according to Airport Authority Chairman Lowell Johnson. The authority will perform a national search to hire an official airport manager.
