Myrna White wins prestigious honor from the
Clayton County Chamber of Commerce Women in Business Council
ATLANTA – A veteran Airport official recognized for her leadership in the community, has been named the 2013 Business Woman of the Year by the Clayton County Chamber of Commerce. Myrna White, director of Marketing and Stakeholder Engagement for Hartsfield-Jackson, was honored during the Chamber’s eighth annual Women in Business Council awards luncheon.
“Myrna’s work in the community is a reflection of what stakeholder engagement is meant to be, and we value that,” said Aviation General Manager Louis Miller. “It is largely because of the relationships she’s built that we enjoy a partnership with Clayton County, one of the Airport’s most important stakeholders.”
The Business Woman of the Year award celebrates the past and present accomplishments of executive-level women in Clayton County.
“Myrna was selected not just for her impressive professional accomplishments,” said Chamber President Yulonda Darden Beauford.š “She is also a tireless advocate for economic development and quality of life in Clayton County.”
White began her service at Hartsfield-Jackson more than two decades ago. She currently leads the team responsible for the Airport’s government and community engagement, media/public relations, international engagement, marketing, special events, graphic design and web content.
“It wasn’t enough to say that the state’s largest economic generator – the world’s busiest airport – rests in your county,” White told the audience about her mission when she began her Airport career. “It also was important to ensure that you had a voice at that airport.”
