FSS Employee Spotlight - Carla Gamble

Carla Gamble
Field Trainer

Flight Services & Systems would like to highlight Field Trainer Carla Gamble. Carla has been working in our Charleston station since March. Since arriving, Carla has transformed an underperforming station into an outstanding one. She has been training our new employees while making sure our current employees are up to date on their training. She has also been keeping them informed of any changes, such as work schedules, due to the coronavirus. Carla has drastically improved the functionality of the Charleston station through regular communication with her teammates including safety meetings and daily briefings.

During these trying times, her leadership and poise have been a welcoming change at the station. Many employees have commented on how Carla has made the team feel more like a family. We can’t thank Carla enough for her hard work and dedication, and we can’t wait to have her back in our corporate office.

FSS Employee Spotlight - Carl Stepic

Carl Stepic
FSS Corporate Controller

Flight Services and Systems would like to recognize Corporate Controller Carl Stepic. Since arriving at FSS in February 2020, Carl has been working diligently on finding ways to cut costs and has impeccable accounting practices. Whether it’s working with our auditors, business partners or corporate needs, Carl’s ability to look at the big picture while still keeping the fine details in focus is outstanding.  His work recently found a way for FSS to save thousands on our telecommunication. His professionalism and communication have been a welcomed sight to our corporate offices. We cannot thank Carl enough for the amazing work he is doing.

General Manager Spotlight – Sherrie Erwin

Sherrie Erwin
IND General Manager

FSS would like to recognize the amazing work that General Manager Sherrie Erwin as been doing at our Indianapolis International Airport Station. Since arriving at IND, Sherrie has turned the operation around and stabilized it. This is the third station that Sherrie has worked in for FSS.

Because of her leadership, Sherrie has improved the station's scorecard with Alaska Airlines. At the end of last year, FSS had a score of "D" which is not only below Alaska Airlines' standards, it's below our standards as well. Sherrie recently received the scorecard for the first quarter of 2020 and FSS scored "A". FSS is seeing the potential for station growth at IND because of Sherrie’s leadership and ability to meet important metrics. We can't thank her enough for her devotion and dedication to FSS and our vision.
