During his tenure at Indianapolis, he held several key management positions overseeing concessions, business development as well as air service development. While at Indianapolis he participated in many exciting projects including being part of the Department of Transportation and Department of State delegation working towards the liberalization of airspace between the People's Republic of China and the United States.

In 2007, his career took him to the Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) as senior advisor of market planning and development. In this role he developed and implemented BWI's Air Service Development Strategy, working regularly with airlines such Southwest Airlines, British Airways and others.

After BWI, Kirk became senior consultant with the Boston, MA based aviation consulting firm SH&E. While with SH&E he was involved in numerous large projects including federal government's Fly America Act, development of the North Texas Super Bowl Host Committee general aviation strategy, retail concession development at Kunming International Airport in China and the privatization of VIP lounges at 9 airports owned and operated by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
