I'm back and CAK is ready for a bright future

Posted on 02/28/2011 by Kristie VanAuken

It is definitely time for me to get into the swing of things again. I've been a bit of a slacker, not posting as often as I should to this blog. I view writing as a bit of a guilty pleasure rather than a mundane requirement though. So, I am back!

So, let's get right into it. Topic numero uno is, of course, the acquisition of AirTran Airways by Southwest Airlines. Sources tell us that the deal could be complete...

The making of an amazing event - Runway 5/23

Posted on 11/23/2010 by Kristie VanAuken

Last Thursday while light mist was dripping from the sky and airplanes were taxiing by, we saw a dream become a reality.  More than 100 friends, partners, community leaders and team members gathered to celebrate the commissioning of Runway 5/23.

The runway isn't new. Actually, it was built as part of the original airfield back in 1946. Why then is this so significant? Well, it's because this runway is more than just pavement, it is a truly a path to our future. Now,...

The acquisition from CAKristie's point-of-view

Posted on 10/08/2010 by Kristie VanAuken

The email arrived in my inbox at about 7:05 a.m. The subject line read: AirTran Airways agrees to Acquisition by Southwest Airlines. Long pause. Re-read headline. Catch my breath. Call my boss.

That was the early sequence of events on Monday, September 27, 2010. I don't think I will ever forget that morning; that feeling.  You see, we've spent the last 14 years in the trenches with AirTran. Together, we built an amazing partnership, amazing airline service for our community, and an amazing...

CAK- Stretching Creative Tactics Again!

Posted on 08/31/2010 by Kristie VanAuken

Many of you have had a chance to view our newest campaign- Airport Intervention.  I just love it when creative minds, in this case Dave Derby and Randy DeMusey, dream up concepts that test the status quo and get us to think in different ways about a brand- in this case ours.

I also love our Punchy Clown. He is adorable but a bit silly and over the top. Well, you have to think out of the box these days to cut through...

CAK Airport + Tenants=Jobs

Posted on 07/16/2010 by Kristie VanAuken

So, the other day I was at a meeting with a local school administrator and the marketing manager of a large employer in our hometown city, Green, Ohio. They were chatting about which one of them- the school system or the large service provider- was the largest employer in Green. Immediately (those of you who know me know that I simply can't keep quiet if I know that an important fact is missing from the conversation), I said "wait a second, the airport is...
