The move is a homecoming of sorts. Donovan was assistant director at the Pensacola airport before he came to Okaloosa.

“I’m very excited about rejoining the Pensacola team,” Donovan said. “It is a wonderful thing to be asked to come back. I worked there for seven years and the team over there thought highly enough of me to ask me to come back as their leader, and that’s very gratifying.

“Going to Pensacola is a big career move for me and good for my family,” he added. “I still live in Gulf Breeze, so the opportunity to go back to Pensacola International is outstanding. It’s a little bit more than double the size in terms of emplacements as VPS (Northwest Florida Regional Airport). It’s a good career move for my part.”

The County Commission hired Donovan in January 2008 to replace the retiring Jerry Sealy.
