Harman resigns as airport director

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. -- Sunil Harman has resigned as the director of Okaloosa County's airports to pursue other opportunities. The departure was announced by Okaloosa County Administrator John Hofstad at Tuesday's commission meeting in Fort Walton Beach. Harman, whose resignation is effective Sept. 30, was not at the meeting. He was hired in July 2013 to oversee the county’s airports. During his tenure, the county launched a rebranding where the name of county’s primary airport was changed to Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport and the Destin facility was renamed Destin Executive Airport.
