By DeAllous Smith

Whether you believe leaders are born, created or just plain lucky, there is no denying the world’s busiest airport continues to develop some of the best and brightest minds in the aviation industry.

In November, the Airport announced Concessions New Business Development and Marketing Manager Marshall Taggart was accepted into the Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) program under the auspices of the National Forum for Black Public Administrators (NFBPA).

“There is an increasing need for talented and capable executives from diverse backgrounds. We have selected 16 candidates who represent some of the best organizations in the country,” said NFBPA Executive Director John Saunders.

Since 1987, the program has groomed mid-level managers to aspire to executive-level positions (Director and above) within large public sector organizations in the U.S. that include 5,000 or more employees. Taggart will learn from those that are teaching and practicing airport and city management, respectively.

“We are extremely happy to have Marshall as one of our ELI participants,” said Saunders. Taggart’s studies will conclude with a presentation at NFBPA’s annual forum in April 2008 in Little Rock, Arkansas.
