Dinolfo Appoints Bill Johnston as Deputy Airport Director

County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced the appointment of Bill Johnston as Deputy Director of the Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC). Johnston has served as Airport Construction Project Manager since May 2007.

“Bill did an incredible job overseeing our $79 million ROC Renovation project, which transformed our airport into a next-generation travel hub in just under two years’ time,” said Dinolfo. “His knowledge of our airport, as well as the aviation industry as a whole, will be a tremendous asset in the day-to-day management of ROC. I’m confident that Bill will help our Airport continue to attract more visitors, more jobs, and more investment to Monroe County moving forward.”

As the Airport Construction Project Manager, Johnston played a critical role in overseeing the $79 million Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization Project, or ROC Renovation. The project was completed on-time with minimal impact to travelers.

Over the past twelve years working at ROC, Johnston has managed projects related to baggage handling, roofing, energy conservation, ramp garage expansion and more. Johnston’s new responsibilities include: budget forecasting, project programming, estimating scoping, delivery of concept to engineering consultants and development of documents and specifications for public bidding of Airport projects.

With nearly 40 years of construction management in our community Johnston previously spent years working at Macedon Excavating, Farash Construction and Christa Construction.

Johnston and his wife Suzanne have spent 30 years as residents in Pittsford, NY raising a family of three children; two grown daughters and a son who will be graduating from Sutherland High School this year.

“Family has always been my foundation and a solid platform on which to build a career of accomplishment and integrity,” said Johnston. “I look forward to continuing to serve the traveling public here at ROC in this new capacity.”
