Brianna Comber and Brock Myers have joined the concessions department of JFKIAT, the firm that manages Terminal 4, home to 31 airlines and which serves 17 million annual air travellers.
A former marketing director for Westfield at Newark Liberty International Airport, Comber serves as concessions marketing manager, while Myers, a former general concessions manager at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, has joined as concessions operating manager at JFK’s Terminal 4.
Gert-Jan de Graaff, president and CEO of JFKIAT, explains: “As our concession programme continues to grow, it is important that we bring in experienced, accomplished personnel who are adept at managing the concessions on all levels.
“With Brianna and Brock’s extensive knowledge of the airport retail landscape, they will undoubtedly help us to expand and develop our concessions division. I am pleased to welcome them both to the Terminal 4 family.”
As JFKIAT’s concessions marketing manager, Comber is responsible for planning and executing an annual marketing plan that drives sales and revenues to the concession programme.
As concessions operating manager at Terminal 4, Myers will manage the day-to-day operations of the concessions programme to drive sales and ensure compliance with standards, and also plans and implements programs for short and long term results, both operationally and financially.
Phase 1 of a two-phase expansion and renovation project was completed in May 2013 at Terminal 4, and includes new and F&B and retail offerings, and Phase II of the $1.4 billion expansion will be completed in early 2015 and will add more gates to the Terminal’s B-Concourse.
