New Wichita airport director comes from Orlando - 2005-08-15

New Wichita airport director comes from Orlando

Bill Wilson

Victor White, former executive vice president and chief operating officer of Orlando, Fla., Sanford International Airport, has been named Wichita director of airports, effective Sept. 12.

White was the top administrator for seven years in Orlando, until his June 30 resignation to seek a top management position at another airport. He was executive director of Orlando Sanford his first three years there.

"The Wichita airport system has great assets with the services and facilities they have now," White says. "I look forward to growing those services."

According to a June 2001 Orlando Business Journal story, White's stint as executive director of the airport ended when the Sanford Airport Authority brought in former mayor Larry Dale as president and CEO -- a change White suggested.

At that time, White received a raise to $100,000 annually as Dale's second in command.

White was one of five finalists who interviewed with City Manager George Kolb and members of a search committee. His hiring caps a six-month search by an executive search firm. No salary was specified.

White's airport career covers 29 years, including 15 as a top administrator. He has worked in Waukegan, Ill.; Midland, Texas; Salt Lake City; and Cleveland. He succeeds Bailis Bell, who retired in December 2004.

Tom Nolan has been interim director of airports since Bell's retirement, but will return to his previous job as assistant director when White takes over.
