West Virginia International Yeager Airport’s (CRW) Chief Marketing Officer Paige Withrow has been named to The State Journal’s Generation Next: 40 Under 40 for 2023. 

Each year, the publication honors 40 emerging young leaders under the age of 40 in industries across the state for their accomplishments within their respective communities. 

Withrow, who graduated from West Virginia University (WVU), was recognized for her efforts in promoting the state through her work at Yeager Airport.

She started work in 2016 at Airport’s Fixed Base Operator (FBO) before working her way up to chief marketing officer in 2022. 

“I am incredibly honored to be recognized as part of this year’s State Journal’s Generation Next: 40 Under 40 for 2023,” Withrow said.

This is the fourth year in a row that an employee from CRW has been recognized by The State Journal.

“So that tells you about our team and all the people we have on staff,” Withrow said. “I’m so fortunate to be able to give back to our state and work in a place that I love. West Virginia holds a special place in my heart, and it is a privilege to contribute to the state’s growth and success through my role at West Virginia International Yeager Airport.”

Airport Director & CEO Dominique Ranieri credits Withrow’s marketing efforts with elevating Yeager’s brand and helping the airport promote the region’s economy. 

“We are incredibly proud of Paige’s accomplishments and the well-deserved recognition she has received from The State Journal,” Ranieri said. “Her innovative marketing approach has elevated our airport’s brand and helped us achieve our strategic goals. This award is a testament to her hard work and commitment to our state, the airport team, and our passengers.”
