New Orleans-based technology and professional services firm GCR Inc. (GCR) is growing in 2017.

Tod Yankee joins the AirportIQ Business and Revenue Manager (ABRM) team as it prepares to release the latest version of its popular software. Yankee, who has served the aviation industry as a consultant for over a decade, started his career in Airport Business and Leasing at both Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and Massachusetts Port Authority. His experience will help the ABRM team release their market-tested revenue management update later this year.

Robert “Bob” Bryant is the newest member to join the FAA and State Aviation teams. Bryant has worked a 30-year career in airport management, most recently as Airport Director of Wicomico Regional Airport, serving as principal representative to the Commission. Bryant carries his expertise into the classroom where he teaches Airport Planning and Management at the collegiate level. GCR’s FAA team has decades of experience as the chosen provider for compliance and reporting solutions for Part 139 inspections, the National Based Aircraft Inventory, and the Airport Master Record safety inspections, all of which Bryant will contribute to. He will also serve as the point of contact for all AirportIQ System Manager (ASM) clients.

“Our Project Managers are critical. They tailor support to each airport and push our products to mitigate risk, improve efficiencies, and drive profitability. I’ve been very impressed by both Tod and Bob’s work over the years. I know our clients will appreciate their dedication and we will all benefit from their combined expertise,” said Timothy Walsh, Director of Aviation Services. GCR’s AirportIQ platform is an integrated suite of software products that help manage your airport, comply with federal regulations, and access critical information needed for data-driven decisions. The suite expanded in 2016 to include two new products: Safety Management System (SMS) and Runway Condition Assessment (RCA). In addition to the ABRM update, the Aviation Team will launch an additional two products in 2017.
