On June 23, 2016 in Airport, General

Conway, South Carolina— After serving as director of the Horry County Department of Airports since February 8, 2014, Director Pat Apone has chosen to take a position with the Louisville Regional Airport Authority.  Prior to being director, Ms. Apone was made the assistant director in September of 2011 and began her career with Horry County in the Finance Department in November of 1997.

“Though I understand what a great opportunity this is for Pat professionally, I hate to see her leave,” stated Chris Eldridge, Horry County Administrator.  “A lot was accomplished during Pat’s tenure with the Horry County Department of Airports; from the completion of the new terminal to resurfacing the airport’s lone runway.  Pat Apone always tackled her job with pride and professionalism.  I wish her well in this new challenge.”
Current Assistant Airport Director Scott VanMoppes will act as Interim Airport Director.  Horry County will initiate the recruitment process for a new airport director immediately.
