Episode 20 – Greg Phillips
“When I started off in airports, it became pretty clear to me that yes, this is where I want to be. This is what I love to do. And this is where I’m going to throw my hat in the ring and keep it there.” – Greg
“Every one of the airports had something unique about it. And they’re not many airports where somebody can say that they’ve had a bear go through the terminal building.” – Greg
Colorado Springs Airport has the 5th largest runway in the entire US and is the same size or bigger than other well known airports like Chicago’s O’Hare International! Greg graduated from West Point and quickly fell in love with aviation allowing him to be an integral leader at five different airports. He was even on the team that built DIA and explains why there is so much land around it. Greg’s passion for COS shines through as he talks about a new program called ‘Small Surprises’ and their largest tenant who is a huge cornerstone to our community. Keep your ears perked for the hottest zip code in the entire US and what it means to the airport’s growth.
