City of Springfield internal auditor Kristy Bork will take on a new role as the assistant director of aviation – finance and administration for Springfield-Branson National Airport, effective April 8. She replaces Mark Roy who retired.

"Everyone at the airport is excited to have Kristy coming onboard," said Brian Weiler, director of aviation at the airport. "Since the airport is a hybrid of government and the private sector, her experience in government and business will be particularly valuable."

Bork has been the City's Internal Auditor since 2010, and prior to that was a supervisor accountant with BKD in Springfield since 2004. She is a licensed certified public accountant and holds Bachelor and Master Degrees in accounting from Missouri State University.

"I am very grateful for the opportunity City Council gave me to be the City's internal auditor, and proud of the work that was accomplished while I was in the position," Bork said. "I am ready for a new challenge and look forward to exciting things ahead at the airport."

Bork is active in several professional/community organizations, including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Institute of Internal Auditors, The Network of Springfield's Young Professionals, and is an Advisory Board Member of MSU's School of Accountancy.
