Roach named manager of Fairbanks International Airport
Roach’s experience includes over 30 years with the aviation industry in Alaska. His most recent positions have been the Northern Region Planning Manager at ADOT&PF in the Aviation and Highways Department. He led programming and planning for over 100 airports throughout the area, and as an active member with the Fairbanks community he volunteers with a wide range of committees and boards.
“Jeff’s knowledge and experience make him exceptionally qualified for this position. He will be a valuable addition to the international airport team,” John Binder, ADOT&PF deputy commissioner, said.
Roach will take on his new duties Thursday.
“I am excited to join the team of dedicated professionals at Fairbanks International Airport and to take on the responsibilities of airport manager,” Roach said. “Fairbanks International Airport is a vital part of the Alaska International Airport System and serves as an economic engine for the State of Alaska.”
Fairbanks International Airport, the second-business airport in Alaska, is a regional connection to interior destinations throughout the state.
