FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Coffman Associates’ tradition of excellence in airport planning continues with the transition of executive leadership to Dave Fitz as Chief Executive Officer/CFO and Mike Dmyterko as President effective at the end of 2019. Both Dave and Mike started their careers with the firm in the early 1990s and developed highly regarded reputations in the industry, and already serve on the Board of Directors. Steve Benson, Jim Harris, and Steve Wagner were among the firm’s earliest employees and have served as CEO, President, and CFO, respectively, since 2009. They will continue to be involved in the firm, focusing on specific airport planning projects and mentoring our upcoming aviation planning leaders, but will also take more time for family - especially grandkids.

Dave has been employed with Coffman Associates since 1992 and transitioned into ownership in 2001. He has worked primarily in Noise and Land Use Compatibility Planning, later becoming the company’s Environmental Planning Group leader. Dave has served on the Board of Directors since 2014. Mike began his career with Coffman Associates in 1995 and became an owner in 2003. His area of specialization is airport master planning, but he has also worked on special studies and client relations. Mike became a member of the Board of Directors in 2016. Dave and Mike will carry forward the values and vision set forth by the firm’s founders in 1979, continuing its dedication to excellence.

In addition to the executive management changes, Coffman Associates is excited to announce that effective January 1, 2020, owners Eric Pfeifer, Patrick Taylor, Kory Lewis, and Matt Quick will transition from Associates in the firm to Principals. Matt will also assume the role of manager of our Phoenix office operations.

We are excited to embark on this new chapter, and we look forward to continuing to serve our airport clients and their communities.
