CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Terry L. Hart has been elevated to president and CEO of the Chattanooga Airport Authority.
He has been interim president since last October when Mike Landguth resigned the presidency to assume leadership of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority in North Carolina.
Hart joined Chattanooga Airport in 2007 as vice president of operations. Before that, he held regional management and vice president of field services positions with American Eagle. He began his career in customer service and general management for Britt Airways in Chicago.
Dan Jacobson, chairman of the airport's board of directors, said Hart is a proven leader and natural fit for the presidency.
