Jeff Tripp comes to Redmond from Arizona where he spent twenty years in different airport administrative positions.
He most recently was the Director of the Prescott Municipal Airport.
Tripp is originally from Massachusetts and is looking forwad to what Oregon offers both personally and professionally.
"Professionally the Redmond Airport is a phenomenal airport that the community has made an impressive investment in the last decade or so. The opportunity to manage a quality facility and to have the outdoor activities really drew me to the area."
All of Tripp's experience is with municipal airports, so his dealings with commercial carriers is more limited.
But he is meeting with Redmond's interim Airport Manager, Bob Noble, who was brought in after former Airport Director Kim Dickie was demoted, and being brought up to speed.
