Brown Returns To Orlando Aviation Authority

The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority added Phillip Brown to its executive team this month, filling a deputy executive director position that had been open since February.

Brown, who became available after his position at UBS Securities was eliminated last month, will “lead the effort to grow aviation and, more particularly, non-aviation revenue,” according to a memo written by Steve Gardner, executive director of the authority.

Brown has more than 25 years of related experience, including a previous stint with the authority, where he was deputy executive director of administration from December 1990 to January 1994. From 1992 to 1994, he also served as treasurer.

Brown will be one of three deputy executive directors. He reportedly will be paid about $202,000 a year. The figure will not affect the airport’s annual finances, as the position was previously budgeted for, according to the memo.
