Greater Orlando Aviation Authority CEO Talks Orlando International Airport Economic Recovery

Phil Brown’s contract with the airport ends in September 2021.

In a statement, Brown said, “there are some unresolved matters and I am willing to remain in place after September to facilitate an orderly transition.” 

He recommended the board hire a firm to assist in the search for his replacement.
