CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Don Swanson has been named Interim Airport Director at the Eastern Iowa Airport while the Cedar Rapids Airport Commission begins a nationwide search to replace Tim Bradshaw.

Swanson, the current Director of Finance, has been with the airport since February 1987.

“With Don's tenure and familiarity with all phases of the airport's operations, it is appropriate to ask him to fill that role,” Josh Schamberger, Cedar Rapids Airport Commission Chair, said in a written statement.

Schamberger says a nationwide search will be conducted to replace Bradshaw who is headed to Roanoke, Virginia to be the Executive Director of the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport. 

Swanson also served as Interim Airport Director when Dan Mann, Bradshaw's predecessor, left in 2009.
