SARASOTA, Fla. — Hanson’s Scott Brady, P.E., senior aviation engineer, and Kelly Rubino, P.E., CBC, senior vice president, were recognized with a Corporate Eagle Award from the Florida Airports Council (FAC) for their contributions toward Florida’s stormwater legislation during FAC’s 43rd annual Conference and Exposition in Naples, Fla. Brady and Rubino were recognized for their above-and-beyond efforts, from assisting with language used in the legislation to providing professional guidance as well as educating members of the Florida legislature and the Governor’s Office on airport stormwater issues.
“Kelly Rubino and Scott Brady received the 2012 FAC Corporate Eagle Award for their assistance with the passage of House Bill 599 that requires the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to adopt a general permit for stormwater management systems serving airside activities at airports. Rubino and Brady provided invaluable personal advocacy with legislators and state leaders, over multiple years, to help see this provision added to state law,” says the Florida Airports Council’s Executive Director Bill Johnson.

He is a distinguished lecturer, especially in the areas of airport stormwater rules as well as airside and landside water management.

Additionally, his work is captured on one of FAC’s seminar series titled “Stormwater Management,” a video distributed to approximately 130 public airports in Florida.

Brady has a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a master’s degree in geotechnical engineering, both from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He also is a licensed commercial pilot.
