Strategic Priority
Good Government

The Savannah Airport Commission recommends approval of recruitment services and fees to Steve Baldwin & Associates, in the amount of $30,485.66. Staff utilized the professional recruitment services of Steve Baldwin & Associates in 2017 to provide recruiting services for the position of Airport Properties Manager. Director of Properties Joanne Mueller advised the Commission that she plans to retire in June 2018.

Steve Baldwin & Associates provided various tasks during the recruitment of the Airport Properties Manager to include a needs assessment, a confidential search and ranking of candidates, arrangement of on-site interviews and preparation of questions, an evaluation matrix of each candidate, and facilitation of the negotiations of job offer.

Steve Baldwin & Associates specializes in aviation industry executive recruiting with expertise in specialty categories such as airport properties management. Staff estimated the cost of this service to be $23,500.00 based on estimated salary. The actual cost exceeded this amount due to the high demand for this specialized position which resulted in a higher than anticipated salary.
