Mann became executive director in Louisville in March 2018. Prior to his current position, he served as the executive director for Columbia Metropolitan Airport where he spearheaded a $58 million capital improvement program, which included various sustainability initiatives such as the development of a five-acre solar farm on the airport’s campus.
Mann’s work as executive director launched the SDF Next Project last year, which kicked off a comprehensive terminal and airfield program aimed at investing more than $400 million in ongoing improvements and enhancements in the coming years. In addition, the airport opened a Mother’s Room with multiple private suites, added its innovative pet therapy program SDF WAGS and began the SDF Tours Program in partnership with Jefferson County Public Schools.
