GSP Executive Director Named Citizen of the Year
Date: January 24, 2011
GSP Executive Director Dave Edwards has been named 2010 Citizen of the Year by The Greer Citizen. "Edwards is recognized for impacting Greer during the past year with a handful of projects at GSP anticipated to inject $50 million annually into the Greer economy," writes Greer Citizen Editor Jim Fair.
Since joining GSP International in July 2009, Edwards has help guide the Airport Commission in its efforts to secure the number one low fare carrier in the country Southwest Airlines. The airline is expected to begin service to GSP early in 2011. Responsible for the overall administration of the airport, Edwards has been instrumental in revamping a number of administrative policies and procedures, and outlining the need for the redevelopment of the existing terminal facilities to support the long-term commercial aviation needs of Upstate SC.
“He’s a fantastic communicator. He has a lot of enthusiasm and it’s so pure,” said Reno Deaton, Executive Director of the Greer Development Corp. “…Pardon the pun, but the sky is the limit.”
