Chattanooga Airport boss leaving to take NC job

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – The President and CEO of the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority is resigning to take a job in North Carolina.

Mike Landguth submitted his resignation, effective November 4, to take a job as director of the Raliegh-Durham Airport.

Landguth has been CEO of the Airport Authority since 2004. He has been with the CMAA since 1999.

"During my time at the airport, I have worked with a talented team of people and we have been able to accomplish a great deal for the community, including more air service options and lower fares for our passengers, as well as securing over $70 million in grant funding for infrastructure development and diversifying our revenue stream so that the airport is not as dependent on the financial fluctuations of the airline industry," Landguth said in a release Monday. "Although I am eager to tackle the new opportunities in Raleigh-Durham, I have loved living and working in Chattanooga and my family and I will always feel at home in this town."

Dan Jacobson, the Chairman of the CMAA, said, "Mike Landguth brought a unique combination of strategic vision and old-fashioned work ethic to our leadership team. Together we have worked through countless challenges within the aviation industry. His passion and vision and love for aviation and this city will be missed. He has left our airport and our community stronger than he found it." 

Jacobson said the CMAA will immediately begin searching for Landguth's successor.
