PALMDALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 22, 2007 -- Robert Gluck has been appointed Airport Manager at LA/Palmdale Regional Airport (PMD) where he will manage day-to-day operation of the facility and oversee its growth and development.

Prior to his new appointment, Gluck held the position of airport maintenance superintendent at LA/Ontario International Airport since 1997. He helped manage over 200 employees in the building trades, landscape, field construction, custodial, fleet maintenance, vehicle procurement and administration.

Gluck began his career with the City of Los Angeles in 1976 as an equipment mechanic in the General Services Department. He held progressively responsible positions at Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).

To prepare PMD for passenger service, Gluck led a crew of construction, maintenance and technicians to completely refurbish PMD's terminal installing new asphalt, plaster, paint, electrical wiring and lighting, counters, signs, data lines and public address systems.
