Green, OH: Things just keep getting better and better at Akron-Canton Airport (CAK). Two outstanding team members have been promoted to management positions to keep the airfield safe and secure and the momentum strong at CAK.

Todd Laps, who has been part of the airport team for 24 years, has been promoted to public safety/operations manager.

As the head security manager at CAK, Todd will also serve as the chief liaison between the Transportation Security Administration, the airport and the airlines operating here. He also serves as fire chief for the airport's aircraft rescue and firefighting division, a 30 member department.Airport firefighters are the first to respond in the event of an emergency aircraft landing.He will report directly to the airport's president and CEO Rick McQueen. "I am supremely confident in Todd's ability to keep our airfield secure and our operations running smoothly," said McQueen. "He has been a valuable member of our team for many years and we have come to trust in his good judgment."

Todd began his career at the airport in 1984 as a member of the field maintenance department and in 2000 was promoted to airport security coordinator and operations supervisor. Under Todd's leadership in 2006, the airport was awarded the FAA's Great Lakes Region Safety Award for outstanding operational improvements and significant safety enhancements.
