In this series, we ask members of the East Coast’s business community to share things they’re loving lately.

This week we asked Derrick Stanford, president and CEO of the Saint John Airport:

“I am loving being part of a renaissance for Saint John.

As a newcomer to the city, I see so much potential and unrealized benefits. It’s been great working with my team at YSJ to ensure that we are doing everything we can to play our role in this revitalization. Saint John is rich with history and the home of so many firsts in Canada. I am eager to educate everyone I meet with some of the amazing facts about Saint John. An airport is such an important gateway for a city and it’s often the first and last thing our visitors see. We are working hard to contribute to all that is great about Saint John. It’s my interest for folks to know that YSJ is one of the fastest growing airports in Atlantic Canada over the last six months! It’s great that our passengers are responding!”
