Cox Leaves Airport Daily Duties Jan. 2

By Bill Dries

Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority President and Chief Executive Officer Larry Cox will leave his day-to-day job running the airport effective Jan. 2. But will remain as a consultant to the airport authority through July when his retirement takes effect.

Cox made the announcement Friday, Oct. 18, laying out a specific departure timetable.

Cox announced his retirement date earlier this year.

With Cox’s exit from day-to-day duties in January, Scott Brockman will begin his tenure as president and CEO. Brockman, who is currently the airport authority’s chief operating officer, was the authority board’s choice to succeed Cox who has been with the airport for 41 years.
