Tatton newest member of Comox Valley Airport board

The Comox Valley Airport Commission (CVAC) confirmed Wednesday the appointment of Keith Tatton to its board of directors.

The Comox Valley Airport Commission (CVAC) confirmed Wednesday the appointment of Keith Tatton to its board of directors.

Keith brings more than 47 years of business acumen with him to the Comox Valley Airport’s board of directors. As the independent operator of Cumberland Ready Mix and then later Cumberland Sand and Gravel, he has been a prominent member of the Comox Valley business community for many years.

“Keith has an extensive history of community service and has served on the boards of a number of community, business and trade associations,” said Comox Valley Airport Commission chair Linda Oprica. “His valuable managerial and financial skills, combined with his enthusiasm and community spirit, make him a wonderful addition to the board.”

Keith has served on the boards of several business and industry organizations including: the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce, the North Vancouver Island Construction Association, the Vancouver Island Construction Association and the British Columbia Construction Association.

“The Comox Valley Airport is an essential economic driver for northern Vancouver Island and it is my absolute pleasure to serve the Comox Valley Airport Commission and the community in this manner,” said Tatton.

Volunteerism is also a big part of Keith’s life. His business raises thousands for worthwhile community groups annually and he sits on the boards of the Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial and the Comox Valley Community Foundation.

Tatton fills the Chamber of Commerce nominee vacancy on the CVAC board, a position formerly held by Brad Minton. Tatton’s appointment was endorsed earlier this month and he attended his first board meeting on July 16.

“The airport is extremely important to the Comox Valley business community of which Keith is an active member,” said Tracey McGinnis, chair of the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce. “I have worked with Keith closely on the Chamber board and I have no doubt that he will serve the airport and the community well.”

The Comox Valley Airport Commission is the governing authority for the operation of the Comox Valley Airport. The nine-member Commission is broadly representative of the Comox Valley community and its members are nominated by the City of Courtenay, the Town of Comox, the Village of Cumberland, the Comox Valley Regional District, the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Comox Valley Economic Development Society.  CVAC is a federally incorporated, not-for-profit entity. It was established through letters patent in 1996.
