“Cheryl’s returning home to where she belongs,” Patterson said. “She spent most of her impressive aviation career as president of one of our airport businesses. She is well qualified to lead OCIA into the future.”

Bush launched her career at Aerodynamics, Inc. (ADI) in 1978 as an office manager. She rose through the ranks to become president in 1992, a role which she held until 2012 shortly before ADI moved out of state. Bush returns to OCIA from Signature Flight Support in Grand Rapids where she has served as general manager since 2015. From 2013-2015, she was a managing member of Adieu Consultant Services LLC, a Commerce Township company that manages aviation projects.
