West Virginia International Yeager Airport’s Chief Financial Officer, Josh Potter, has been named to The State Journal’s Generation Next: 40 Under 40 for 2022. This is the third year in a row that an employee from CRW has been recognized by the State Journal.

For 17 years, The State Journal’s Generation Next: 40 Under 40 has recognized young professionals’ understanding work and dedication to making West Virginia a better place to live, raise families, and do business.

Potter graduated from West Virginia University in 2009 with a degree in accounting. He has been a licensed Certified Public Accountant since April 2012 and has been a dedicated employee of CRW since 2018, when he was hired as a Comptroller/Assistant Director of Finance. Potter was promoted to Chief Financial Officer in January of 2022.

“I love working at the airport. We have a great team of hard-working and forward-thinking individuals. It’s exciting to be a part of something that has such a positive impact on West Virginia,” said Potter. “The airport has accomplished a lot in the past few years, including building the Marshall Bill Noe Flight School and a U.S. Customs facility, and I believe it will continue to advance and grow for many years to come.”

“While it’s great to see all the accomplishments of this year’s 40 Under 40 leaders, it’s even more meaningful knowing one of our own was recognized,” said Airport Director and CEO Nick Keller. “We are so proud of Josh and how he embodies West Virginia values to improve our community and airport daily.”

The Generation Next 40 Under 40 publication will be the June 20 edition of the State Journal.
