Julie Wilsey will be taking over the position of Airport Director at ILM International Airport. The move will be effective January 1, 2015 according to Wilsey.
At a previous meeting, current Airport Director Jon Rosborough announced he would be stepping down from the position.
Wilsey is currently the airport's Deputy Director. She has been with ILM for 15 years.
"While the title is important and a big jump, I don't think there's going to be anything different. We're still the same team at ILM hoping to do great things for this community," said Wilsey.
The replacement announcement was made by the ILM Airport Authority at a special meeting Friday night.
Wilsey said she is the first female Airport Director in the ILM Airport's history.
"This has been my life's goal to lead the team here at ILM and to be part of this community. I'm just delighted to have the opportunity. I'm going to work hard," said Wilsey.
