October 2018 airportbusiness 33 Brian Dorman Brian Dorman was working at a consulting firm when he got is first exposure to working with the aviation industry. Dorman grew up around the construction industry but aviation presented a new opportunity to work on projects facing different rules and regulations to those outside his background. “When it’s time for me to leave, I want to be able to look back and say I left things better than I found them,” he said. “I like to know that I’m making a positive impact.” Dorman is a project manager for the Syracuse Regional Airport Authority (SRAA).His daily activities include planning, design and coordinating construction projects to improve the authority’s facilities and structures to help make the region a leading destination. “I value the opportunity to be involved from a projects initial need and conceptual ideas to the final product and construction completion,” he said. “It gives me a sense of satisfaction to leave at the end of the day knowing that progress has been achieved, whether in the form of design or the actual construction phase.” He’s currently the lead project manager for the $60 million dollar terminal renovation at the Syracuse Hancock International Airport. “The current terminal improvement project in which the conceptual design concepts began almost two years ago,” Dorman said. “Seeing this project come together with such an aggressive timeframe for completion has been very challenging and rewarding at the same time.” Prior to Dorman’s tenure at SRAA, he worked as a civil engineer for CHA Consulting’s civil site service group. He has worked as an engineer/project manager for several multi-million dollar projects. A Native of central New York, Dorman served in the United States Marine Corps in the 0351 Anti-Armor Assault Division as a Demolition Section Leader. He was in direct command of 12 marines with oversight of day to day operations. Continued online at Congratulations! Brian Dorman Aviation Project Officer Syracuse Hancock International Airport
