Please join us for our monthly lunch meeting with guest speaker, Mr. Jerry Orr, Aviation Director at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Jerry will discuss current airport construction projects and future expansion and upgrade plans.
As Aviation Director, Orr is responsible for all aspects of the airport's operation. During Orr's 23-year tenure as Aviation Director, CLT has grown to become the nation's 11th busiest airport in number of passengers and sixth busiest in number of operations and is consistently ranked among the nation's top airports.
Known for his unique management style and fiscal stewardship, Orr is respected as a visionary by leaders in the aviation industry, the public and private sector and among Fortune 500 CEO's worldwide. He has developed, implemented and refined unique solutions to challenges in an ever changing industry, resulting in an air transportation facility with continued airline growth that is one of the most cost efficient airports in the world. Orr developed the CLT Air Cargo Center and has led the extensive development of corporate aviation, resulting in several Fortune 500 companies headquartering their aviation operations at CLT. He spearheaded construction of CLT's third parallel runway, which opened in February 2010 and was a driving force in bringing Charlotte's new regional intermodal facility to CLT's airfield.
An "Export Achievement Award" will be presented to Magellan Aviation Group for their progressive growth over the last 5 years. Recognition of this award will be given by the U.S. Department of Commerce and presented to Magellan Group's Robert W. Fessler, Executive Vice President Global Marketing.
