(CNS Local Life): Darynn Conolly, who has worked for 10 years at Charles Kirkconnell International Airport (CKIA) on Cayman Brac, was last month promoted to airport operations officer. In making the announcement, the Cayman Islands Airports Authority (CIAA), which owns and operates CKIA and Owen Roberts International Airport (ORIA), said in his new role Conolly will perform the necessary administrative duties to contribute to the efficiency of airport operations, including the monitoring of airside and terminal facilities and personnel, to ensure compliance with CIAA airport policies and procedures.

“I am thrilled to have been given this employment opportunity and would like to sincerely thank everyone involved in making this a reality,” said Conolly in a CIAA press release. “I look forward to making a positive contribution to the overall success of CKIA operations.”

Conolly started at CKIA as an aeronautical information services officer and meteorological observer before acting in the position of airport operations officer from January 2015 to March 2016. Prior to being promoted, he participated in 18 months of on-the-job training and development planned activities with his assigned mentor, CIAA quality and compliance manager Jeremy Jackson, who was responsible for ensuring that he satisfactorily met the requirements to fulfill the duties listed in the CKIA airport operations officer job description.

“As a proud Caymanian and Darynn’s mentor, I am happy to have been used as a catalyst to guide Darynn through his career advancement and to help him succeed both personally and professionally,” said Jackson.

In his new position, Conolly will be reporting directly to Miguel Martin, CKIA airport manager, who said, “It has been a gratifying experience in supporting Darynn to achieve this pinnacle of his career. This is a well-deserved promotion, following months of preparatory training, mentoring and coaching. He is a proven valuable asset to the CIAA.”
