Airport official to speak at Fitton Center in ‘Celebrating Self’ series

Brian Cobb, chief innovation officer at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, will be the Fitton Center’s special guest for the “Celebrating Self” luncheon series on Wednesday.

“We’ve had an outstanding season of ‘Celebrating Self.’ We’ve had some incredible speakers, they’ve been insightful, they’ve been funny, they’ve been charming, and they’ve really brought fantastic energy to the room. The last two months have seen us with John Morris Russell, conductor of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, and Steve Timmer, executive director of Hamilton Parks Conservancy, both of them are incredible speakers, who started off the year, and we will continue that in March with Brian Cobb,” said Ian MacKenzie-Thurley, executive director of the Fitton Center.

Cobb will discuss his experiences, the future growth of CVG and his hopes for the future of the Cincinnati community.

Cobb, a native Cincinnatian, is a licensed flight instructor, a commercial pilot, leader of a team of professionals working in the fields of customer experience and terminal services, information technology and innovation programming.

“Brian is really fun, very energetic, and incredibly passionate about what he does, and he’s ready to share that story with everybody here in Hamilton,” said MacKenzie-Thurley.

As part of Celebrating Self, attendees will have a catered lunch, and will hear from Cobb in an up-close and intimate setting. After his talk, there will be a time for a Q&A with guests.

On average, 70 to 100 guests turnout for the speaker series events. Tisha Livingston, president, 80 Acres Farms will be the next guest for “Celebrating Self” on Wednesday, April. 1.
