Grand Rapids, Michigan, July 21, 2022 – Roger Morgan has been named vice chair of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport Authority Board.
Morgan will serve alongside the seven-member board, which is appointed by the Kent County Board of Commissioners and responsible for general oversight of the airport.
Prior to being named vice chair, Morgan served on the Airport board for eight years. He brings more than three decades of experience in business management, local government and strategic planning to the role.
“We are thrilled to have Roger serve as our vice chair,” Airport Authority Board Chair Dan Koorndyk said. “His impressive background and prior experience with the Airport make him a great candidate for the position—he will help the Airport transition into the future as we embark on many exciting initiatives to enhance our passenger experience.”
Morgan previously served as CEO of Rockford Ambulance for nearly 40 years, managing the organizations growth and expansion. He also oversaw the company’s national accreditation, the first in the nation to achieve that status. Morgan simultaneously serves as a Kent County commissioner, a position he has held for more than two decades.
“I am delighted to continue my service to the Airport through this new role,” Morgan said. “The Airport connects our region to the rest of the country—and world—and acts as a catalyst for our local economy. I’m honored by the opportunity as we continue to build a world-class airport for our community.”
