The Louisville Regional Airport Authority, which operates Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF), has made two new executive appointments.
Heather Fuqua has been named director of human resources, responsible for defining, developing and directing strategic initiatives for talent management and recruitment, compensation, compliance and employee relations. With more than 15 years experience in the field, Fuqua most recently served as senior human resources business partner at Cushman & Wakefield.
Kyle Hartlage has been appointed director of planning and engineering, overseeing planning, engineering and construction programs for capital projects and major maintenance initiatives for both Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF) and Bowman Field (LOU). Hartlage is familiar with both airports due to serving the Airport Authority as an engineering consultant with Foth Infrastructure & Environment, LLC, Stantec Consulting Services Inc and HNTB Corporation.
“The expertise that both Heather and Kyle bring to the Airport Authority is a win for us,” said Dan Mann, executive director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority. “As we continue moving towards the future, I’ve always felt it’s crucial we have the best team in place to take us there. With the addition of these two professionals, I’m confident they will be assets to the organization and we welcome them to the team.”
