Boise Airport Director resigns. Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field (KBOI), Idaho

Richard McConnell, who has been the Boise Airport Director for the past four years, has announced he is leaving his position effective November 11.

“Richard’s tenure will be remembered as a time of significant advancement for the Boise Airport,” Mayor Bieter said. “The passage of the recent constitutional amendment improving airport financing (HJR5), the retention of the TRACON landing system, the installation of the new customs office, the beautiful new airport entranceway and the upcoming parking expansion -- all were successfully managed under Richard’s leadership.”

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my four plus years in Boise,” Director McConnell said. “I’m proud to say I leave the airport in better position than when I came in 2007. I have complete faith that the wonderful staff I leave behind will keep the airport on its same positive trajectory.”

Garry Beaty, the City’s current Director of Information Technology, will serve as interim airport director while the City conducts a search for new director.

A specific reason for McConnell’s resignation was not announced.
