Drum Roll Please

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am pleased to announce that Camden Bruno (BN) has accepted the role of Events Coordinator here at ZBW. Camden's work with our current roster updates and his work on the most recent Cross The Pond planning make him an excellent choice to take over in this position. 

I expect BN to hit the ground running and pick up the events that are already in planning phase and make up some good creations of his own. As has been said of recent promotions, great things are coming and we are all looking forward to what you can do.

So, please join me in congratulating BN on his new position. I just want to tell you good luck, we're all counting on you.

One good promotion deserves another

Ladies and gentlemen,

I would like to announce the promotion of one of our own, Matthew Miller (MR) to Deputy Air Traffic Manager. MR has been a great training staff member and has most recently been the Events Coordinator. MR has excelled at both of these positions and will make a great DATM with his knowledge of our facility and his energy/attitude. I'll go all cliche on you and say it seems like yesterday that I was receiving PM's on VRC from ZID_MM_OBS when I was working LEB_TWR about how cool he thought it was I was staffing it. 

So join me in congratulating MR on his new promotion, there are great things ahead!
