Gibbs to manage Lake Tahoe Airport
The city of South Lake Tahoe recently named the next manager of the Lake Tahoe Airport.
Mark Gibbs, who previously served as the director of the Elko Regional Airport in Elko, Nevada, was tapped by City Manager Nancy Kerry to manage the airport. His hire was announced in a press release earlier this week. Gibbs’ first day was Monday, Nov. 28.
“Mark brings a wealth of knowledge and professional expertise to Lake Tahoe Airport with over 12 years of experience in all facets of airport operations and planning,” Kerry said in the release. “The city is very fortunate Mark is joining the city’s management team and we look forward to his leadership at the airport.”
Gibbs earned his bachelor’s degree in aviation management and his master’s degree in airport management and development. It is the potential at the airport, Gibbs said in the press release, that drew him to the South Shore.
“I see tremendous opportunities to expand the community benefits conferred by this airport to the citizens of South Lake Tahoe. I am excited to manage this facility in a sustainable manner. It is Lake Tahoe Airport’s untapped potential that drew me to South Lake Tahoe. I am extremely excited about serving in this community and look forward to engaging with the community in making this airport valued by all”.
