The Tucson Airport Authority has partnered with Sun Corridor Inc. in a new effort to maximize industrial and commercial development in the region’s airports. The authority, which controls Tucson International Airport (TUS) and Ryan Airfield (RYN), has been actively working to attract development in its airports.
“The Sun Corridor Inc. staff represents over 100 years of combined experience, and we are recognized by the national site selection community as the ‘quarterback’ and leader in economic development for Southern Arizona,” says David Hutchens, chair of Sun Corridor Inc. and president and CEO of UNS Energy Corp., parent company of Tucson Electric Power and UniSource Energy Services. “We have the ability to rapidly market one of the region’s top assets.”
This new agreement with the economic development agency leverages Sun Corridor’s expertise and more than $2.5 million budget to achieve the Tucson Airport Authority’s goals.
“We believe this partnership announcement is a game changer because we are pioneering a new way forward in how economic development is accomplished by the TAA,” Tucson Airport Authority President and CEO Bonnie Allin and Sun Corridor President and CEO Joe Snell said in a joint announcement. “As leaders of these two organizations, we cannot express enough how truly excited we are to announce this new model for the airport and other potential industries.”
