NASSAU, Bahamas – Nassau Airport Development Co’s (NAD) president and chief executive officer, Stewart Steeves, today announced the appointment of Kevin McDonald (pictured) to the position of vice president of maintenance and engineering, effective January 1, 2012.

McDonald joined NAD in September 2008 as director of maintenance and engineering, managing a large team responsible for electrical, mechanical and structural engineering and maintenance at Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA).

Steeves said: “I am absolutely delighted to have Kevin join our executive ranks as the second Bahamian to do so. He is exceptionally talented and focused, and will make a great addition to the executive team, joining Vernice Walkine, our first Bahamian executive, who joined us a little more than a year ago. Having both of them participate in our strategic planning discussions, bringing their respective experiences and perspectives makes for a great team.”

“Kevin has the broad responsibility for balancing the development and construction of new facilities, while maintaining the old existing facilities as we transition to the new terminals. With new technologies and systems that make our terminals more efficient, Kevin and his team of technicians will ensure that the highest standards of performance are obtained. He is a true professional, who cares about the products and people who make LPIA function around the clock, every day. We are thrilled to elevate him to this executive position where he can more directly influence how things get done.”

NAD is currently engaged with the construction of Stage 2 of the project, the Arrivals Terminal, which will house Bahamas Immigration and Bahamas Customs/Baggage Claim, and is scheduled for completion in the Fall 2012.

Commenting on his appointment, McDonald said: “I am very pleased to have been given this appointment, and I look forward to advancing the LPIA Redevelopment Project, while ensuring that we maintain the highest standards across all terminals, impacting positively on the passenger experience. This executive team is a dynamic group, and I feel very fortunate to be a part of such a group of dedicated professionals. We will have a good time building LPIA for the future.”

DigitalRoute today announced that MediationZone from DigitalRoute has been selected by BTC, the Bahamas telecommunications company, to support their ongoing 4G and NGN projects, according to PR Newswire.

The Broadcasting Corporation of The Bahamas (ZNS) has signed a contract with digital integration company Kit Digital Inc to upgrade the TV broadcaster's facilities from analog to digital. The contract, worth $2.4 million, is part of a $5-million government fund allocation for modernization.
