Skip Miller, executive director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority, told the authority’s board of directors that he intends to retire no later than March 31, 2018. He said he has agreed to defer full retirement until that date to complete certain important strategic projects, provided he is able to gradually reduce his day-to-day management responsibilities.
To facilitate the transition the board agreed to contract with Karen Scott, former Louisville Regional Airport Authority deputy executive director for planning and development, to return effective May 1, 2017 to assume day-to-day staff management while the search for Miller’s replacement is underway.
Miller, who has led the authority and Louisville International (SDF) since September 2003, said he feels this is the perfect time for him to step back. “It has been a distinct privilege to close out my career by serving this great city,” he said. “Our very talented staff, guided by our knowledgeable board, always keeps a sharp eye on the future. That’s why our airports are and will remain the prime economic engines of the region.”
