In January 2024, SCBIZ Magazine unveiled the recipients of its inaugural list of South Carolina’s 50 Most Influential People. Among this prestigious group was SCTAC CEO Jody Bryson

Since 2007, when Jody assumed leadership of SCTAC, he has remained singularly focused on positioning the business airpark for global business. By his own estimation, his crowning achievement was helping South Carolina earn the unique distinction of the “Global Home of the Lockheed Martin F-16.” 

Working tirelessly with local, state and federal officials, Jody helped secure the future of Lockheed Martin in Greenville, which ultimately turned the aerospace giant’s SCTAC facility into the world’s only production and sustainment facility for the iconic F-16 Fighting Falcon.

There’s more to the story of why Jody was named to this inaugural Power List, which you’ll find on page 26 of SCBIZ Magazine.

Congratulations to Jody and all the honorees of this inaugural honor.
