In another step towards finding a successor to Dallas/Fort Worth Airport chief executive Jeff Fegan, the airport's board is meeting on Monday evening to discuss the executive search.
The board will meet entirely in closed session at the airport's headquarters building at 5 p.m. There are no items scheduled for a vote on the meeting agenda.
Fegan is scheduled to retire from the airport on September 1 after leading the airport for 19 years. During his tenure, the airport opened its new international terminal, rental car facility and Skylink transportation system and he successfully helped negotiate the end of the Wright Amendment. The airport is currently in the midst of a $2 billion terminal improvement project to upgrade Terminals A, B, C, and E.
The board hired executive search firm, SpencerStuart, to help with the job search. First-round interviews were conducted in May and the airport board said it expects to have a finalist announced in July.
The board's next regularly schedule monthly meeting will be on July 11 and a decision on choosing Fegan's replacement could come by then.
