Augusta Regional Airport gets new executive director

Charlotte Douglas International Airport's assistant aviation director Herbert Judon has unanimously been selected as the new executive director of Augusta Regional Airport, the Augusta Aviation Commission announced on Thursday.

The Augusta Aviation Commission voted 8-0 yesterday to hire Judon as the regional airport's next executive director, saying he will "fit right in" the job.

Announcing the selection of the new executive director, Commission Chairman Cedric Johnson said, "We were pleased with the quality and talent of candidates applying for the position but the Commission felt, as a body, that Herbert stood out as the best match for the Augusta Regional Airport as we move forward."

Judon has already accepted the offer. He will earn $160,000 annually in addition to some other benefits like car allowance.

The new executive director is one of the few professionals whose credentials include certifications as an International Airport Professional as well as an Accredited Airport Executive. He boasts a combined 28 years of active and reserve duty and nineteen years with Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Around nine years ago, Judon founded the "Runway 5K" at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport and earned a Bronze Star for his exceptional service with the North Carolina National Guard during military operation Iraqi Freedom.
