The Fuels Station Manager of the Year award recognizes those individuals who have made significant achievements in the aviation fuel industry.

Jason Maga is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and has previously worked for Hawaiian Airlines and several CPA firms including Ernst & Young, LLP. Since 2007, Jason has managed HFFC fuel storage facilities at Honolulu (HNL), Kona (KOA) and Hilo (ITO) international airports. In 2013 Jason participated on the Hawaii Refinery Task Force to determine future storage requirements for the Islands of Hawaii. As a result Jason has been instrumental in determining and implementing upgrades and expansion projects for existing facilities at Honolulu and Kona airports. He has negotiated new ground leases and financing and worked with engineers to build new storage facilities at Maui’s Kahului Airport (OGG) and Lihue Airport (LIH) on the Island of Kauai. He has also worked with the HFFC in achieving savings totaling $1.7 million associated with insurance, rent and tax reductions.
Larry McMahon, ASIG’s Vice President Fuel Consortiums, remarked, “These projects have had a direct and significant impact in securing and improving the fuel storage and supply network as utilized by both the commercial and general aviation markets within the Islands of Hawaii.
