Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company, proudly sent a team of 8 runners to participate in the 19th Annual PSE&G Teterboro Airport 5K on Saturday, July 16, 2016. This unique race, located at one of the busiest general aviation airports in the country, attracts nearly 1,000 runners and hundreds of spectators each year. The course, which takes place mostly on one of the two airport runways, is flat with only five turns, two water stops, and mile clocks. While the course itself may not seem challenging to a seasoned runner, the summer heat reflecting from the sun-drenched tarmac is often the biggest challenge. The event was certified and sanctioned by the USATF-NJ.

Team results were calculated by the using the top 3 running times from that team. Meridian finished 4th among TEB tenants with a final team score of 1:26:58 and an average of time of 28:59.56. The top scores from Team Meridian were as follows:

Cristian Valencina 27:43.64 (239th overall)
Anthony Zambrano 28:23.44 (262nd overall)
Eric Chavez 30:51.61 (328th overall)

More race results are available online at http://www.compuscore.com/cs2016/july/teterbor.htm#overall

The event featured over $10,000 in random prizes, a $1,000 grand prize, ChronoTrack B-Tag scoring, United Way mini-flyer dashes, refreshments and a DJ. The event benefits The Bergen County United Way, which is one of the largest charitable organizations in the community. Proceeds collected from the run help the organization to provide direct services to the most vulnerable residents in the community and to develop programs and financial resources to address unmet needs.

Meridian’s Nora Jacob Promoted to Customer Service Supervisor

Nora Jacob, Customer Service Supervisor

Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company based at Teterboro Airport, is pleased to announce the promotion of Nora Jacob to Customer Service Supervisor. Her primary responsibilities will be to oversee the work performance of the customer service team, collaborate with management to assure that the customer experience continues to meet or exceed expectations, and to assist our customers with their service requests in a professional and friendly manner consistent with Meridian values.

Nora started with Meridian in 2011 as a Customer Service Representative working at the front desk in the FBO lobby. In 2015, she expressed interest in a cross-functional assignment to expand her horizons, and was soon transferred into a newly created position called Customer Assurance with Meridian Air Charter. After several months in her new role, she realized that her true calling was Customer Service, and she returned to the front desk where she accepted more responsibility, including serving as an assistant to the FBO President and Vice-President.

Betsy Wines, VP of Customer Service and Human Resources, had this to say, “Nora was instrumental in creating a Customer Service training program that we use with our new hires. She is respected by her co-workers and they often turn to her for advice and mentoring. This promotion was a natural step for Nora in her role at the front desk.”

Please join Meridian in congratulating Nora on her promotion!
