Chief Executive Officer, Greater Orlando Aviation Authority

Website Greater Orlando Aviation Authority

The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (“GOAA, “the Authority”, or “the airport”) operates Orlando International Airport (“MCO”) as well as Orlando Executive Airport (“ORL”), a general aviation reliever airport.  Pre-pandemic MCO served more than 50 million passengers, making it the busiest airport in Florida, third largest origin and destination (O&D) airport in the United States, the tenth busiest airport in the country, and thirty-first busiest in the world with $42 billion of economic impact in the Central Florida region. The airport currently resides on close to 12,000 acres of land, comprising the fourth largest airport by land mass in the United States.

Consistent with the planned retirement of the incumbent, Philip Brown, in January 2022, the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority is now seeking to recruit a new Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”).  This represents an outstanding opportunity for a dynamic and visionary leader to take the Authority to the next level in the pursuit of its mission and vision.

The new CEO will work in a highly collaborative manner with the Authority Board, and all key internal and external stakeholders, to advance the Authority in support of the robust economic growth of the greater Orlando region.
