Upon His Retirement
from the NAA Board of Commissioners
Naples Airport Authority (NAA) Chair Michael Lenhard recognized Commissioner James Rideoutte for his years of service to the airport and the community at the December NAA Board of Commissioners meeting. On behalf of all airport staff, Chair Lenhard thanked Commissioner Rideoutte and wished him a fond farewell as he completed his term on the NAA Board.
A resident of Naples since 1989, Rideoutte actively served the community on numerous boards, associations and committees, including 12 years as the executive director of The Naples Players, which brings the arts to the Naples community. Through his many years of community service, Rideoutte has significantly improved the quality of life in Naples and Collier County.

NAA Executive Director Chris Rozansky also recognized Rideoutte for his wisdom, insights and humor. Rideoutte was presented with a plaque in appreciation of his many years of contributions to the NAA.
