Lee County Port Authority/Southwest Florida International Airport

Facing declining revenues, a hiring freeze, no raises and the addition of a new 798,000-square-foot terminal, the maintenance department needed to ensure customers would receive the same levels of quality with less dependence on outside vendor support and professional service contractors.
