New Executive Director at Evansville-Vanderburgh Airport

The Evansville-Vanderburgh Airport Authority Board of Directors unanimously appointed Nate Hahn as the airport’s new executive director.

“Our airport is very fortunate to have Nate Hahn as the next Executive Director,” said Airport Authority Board President JP Engelbrecht. “This is the ideal and often rare situation to be able to promote a leader from within an organization who is ready to go on day one.”

Engelbrecht said that Hahn knows the airport and the community intimately, and he said that Hahn has the full confidence and support of the Board of Directors to lead the airport toward even greater success.

“I am pleased to be a part of a community that understands the value of our airport as an economic engine, connecting friends, family and businesses across the globe,” said Nate Hahn, EVV’s next executive director. “I look forward to continuing to work with our airport board, employees and airline and community partners to create a world-class passenger experience at EVV.”

Hahn, a graduate of Purdue University’s top-rated national aviation program and native of Indiana, started his career in Midland, Texas in 2005, prior to joining EVV in 2011. As director of operations and maintenance at EVV, Hahn has been recognized for his leadership in EVV’s runway relocation project that was completed safely, under budget and one-year ahead of the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) deadline. He has also been a driving force in the current terminal renovation project, which is set to be completed this fall.

Hahn, who currently serves locally on the Growth Alliance Board and is an active member of the Southwest Indiana Chamber of Commerce, was recently selected as Indiana’s state representative to the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), where he holds a Certified Member accreditation.

“Ultimately, it is about continuing the progress that we are already making,” said Hahn. “Doug has helped build a safe, thriving airport and succeeding him allows me to leverage all that I have achieved as the airport’s director of operations and maintenance and to build on a very solid foundation.”
