New CEO Named at Manchester Airport

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, a New England Council Member, has a new Chief Executive Officer.  The Manchester, NH, Board of Alderman recently voted to confirm Theodore “Ted” Kitchens to lead the airport, replacing former director Mark Brewer, who retired earlier this year.

Kitchens approval by the Alderman follows his nomination by Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig in July.  Kitchens is a seasoned airport leader, having most recently served as the general manager of the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, TX, for the past three Years.  He has also held leadership roles at airports in Atlanta, GA, and Newport News, VA.  In nominating him for the post, Mayor Craig noted that he stood out in the field of nearly 30 applicants, and was the unanimous choice of her national search committee.

“I am honored to be confirmed as the next leader of the terrific team at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport,” said Kitchens in a statement. “I would like to thank the Board of Mayor and Aldermen for their support and for placing their trust in my leadership. I look forward to meeting the MHT team members, our airline partners, the general aviation community, and engaging with the local business and community leaders.”

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is New England’s fourth largest airport by passenger volume, servicing nearly 2 million passengers in 2017.  American Airlines, Delta, Southwest, and United provide service from Manchester to destinations throughout the US.

The New England Council is pleased to welcome Ted Kitchens to the region, and looks forward to the airport’s continued success under his leadership.  Read more in The Union Leader.
