GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The Grand Junction Regional Airport's new Executive Director, Angela Padalecki, began her new position on Monday.
She's replacing Kip Turner, who left in June 2017 to become the director of aviation at the Eagle County Regional Airport.
Padalecki worked for Denver International Airport since 2013, most previously serving as the Director of Airline Affairs.
During her time at DIA she also served as a Senior Advisor to the Chief Financial Officer.
Airport Authority board members said it was her experience with non-aviation revenue building that set her apart from the other candidates who applied for the position.
