EDMONTON — Scott Clements, President and CEO of Edmonton Airports, today announced that Vice-President Marketing and Business Development, Garry King, has tendered his resignation from Edmonton Airports.

“Garry has been speaking to me off and on for some time about moving to a new career,” said Clements. “He has been careful to choose a time which allows a smooth transition for Edmonton Airports, and I appreciate his consideration in doing so.”

King has been with Edmonton Airports for four-and-a-half years. His resignation is effective December 31, 1997.

“Garry has contributed enormously to air service in Edmonton during his tenure here,” said Clements. “He was instrumental in achieving consolidation, which time will demonstrate as the key element in improving air service to this region. He can take personal credit for attracting such new services as Martinair flights to Amsterdam and Horizon scheduled service to Seattle. He has worked closely with the Destination Edmonton initiative to attract inbound travellers to our community, and he has worked tirelessly to promote regional airline development for all of northern Alberta. Our community owes a debt of gratitude to Garry King for his extensive and tireless efforts on our behalf.”
