I deeply value the relationships I have developed in the aviation industry and wish the Airport Commission, the many tenants and customers that I dealt with on a daily basis, and all the Airport employees whom I have had the privilege of serving with over my twenty-five years continued success in providing a great level of customer service to the traveling public.”

Mr. Coe has distinguished himself through membership and offices held in the Georgia Airports Association, the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce, The Kiwanis Club and Leadership Savannah.

Patrick S. Graham, Executive Director of the Commission, stated, “Dan has been an instrumental part of our growth and success during his tenure.

During his employment with the Commission, Dan Coe demonstrated exemplary leadership and has made numerous contributions towards the development of the Airport.

As stated earlier, Dan started as an Intern over 25 years ago and throughout the years, we have worked side by side to ensure that the Airport provides first-class service to our customers, tenants and employees.

Dan has made many major contributions to the Airport and his expertise and advice will be truly missed.”
