Keaghon Stark, facilities manager at Wilmington International Airport, was named a winner in Airport Business magazine's 2021 Top 40 Under 40 program.

The list "showcases the top talent and leading thinkers in the aviation industry who are driving success and innovations for the future," according to a news release.

Candidates for the 2021 list were vetted on innovation, outstanding attributes and commitment and involvement in the industry, the release stated. Winners were selected by members of the Airport Business staff.

“The 2021 Top 40 Under 40 are another crop of incredible young leaders cementing a strong future for the aviation industry in North America,” said Joe Petrie, editorial director of the Endeavor Aviation Group, in the release. “The winners come from a wide variety of backgrounds and serve various facets of the aviation industry and are making differences that will impact how North America travels for years to come."

Stark is responsible "for all the airfield, airport facilities and management of the maintenance employees," according to an article.

The article also stated, "During ILM’s $60 million terminal expansion project, Stark monitored critical equipment installation and power cut overs scheduled while the facility was vacant. He ensured all problems were resolved before morning fleet launch."
