APPLETON, WIS. – Outagamie County Regional Airport Director, Martin Lenss, has accepted a position at Rochester International Airport in Minnesota. He will step down from his current position at Outagamie on May 1, 2013, which he has held for 5 years. The Rochester position will allow Lenss, his wife and children to live closer to their families.
“Few public servants have made a mark as quickly and as lasting as Marty.” said Outagamie County Executive Thomas Nelson. “In five years, he has engineered an economic renaissance at our airport that has led to critical job creation and vital commercial growth. On top of that, he developed sustainable air travel for our community in one of the industry’s more challenging eras. On behalf of Outagamie County and a grateful community, I wish Marty, Shona and his family all the best in the years to come.”
“I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such great people from the community, county board, and especially the airport team who has always worked hard to provide the region a great airport,” said Lenss. “Opportunities don’t present themselves like this often and it has been a hard decision. We will miss you all and wish you the best.”
