Interim City Manager Mark Foxworth has announced that Sam Carver, who currently manages the Witham Field/Martin County, Florida Airport has accepted the job of Fernandina Beach’s next airport director.
Carver has almost 30 years’ experience in the airport industry and has extensive knowledge of FAA funding and policies.
He also has innovative ideas to make the airport part of the larger Fernandina Beach community, Foxworth said. His anticipated start date is May 30.
Foxworth thanked HR Director Denise Matson and former airport director Nate Coyle for culling through the applications and conducting in-depth interviews, which led to identifying Carver as the ideal candidate to take the helm at the airport.
