John D. Clark, executive director and chief executive officer of the Jacksonville Airport Authority, will keep the same titles in his new role at the Indianapolis Airport Authority.
He has had the role with the JAA since 2001, when it split from the Jacksonville Port Authority; there, he was director of aviation for five years.
“John has consistently focused on making the JAA system the very best in the world,” says Jacksonville Aviation Authority Board Chairman Jim McCollum. “Through his leadership, JAA has made tremendous operational and facility improvements; in spite of the significant changes in the aviation industry and economy.
“John has earned the chance to run a larger airport and Indianapolis is fortunate to get him. We will certainly miss his leadership and vision,” McCollum continues. “We wish John and his family the best in the future.”
His new position becomes effective April 10.
Ernestine Moody-Robinson, deputy executive director and chief operating officer, will assume Clark’s duties until the JAA board selects a permanent replacement.
