Accommodating more than 150 takeoffs and landings an hour and 80 million passengers a year, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is a global economic engine and a centerpiece of business in the Southeastern U.S.  In 2009 the airport generated direct business revenue – sales to airlines and service companies directly dependent on the airport – of $32.5 billion and is Georgia’s largest employer.  On Tuesday, May 10, 2011, the man in charge of this facility, General Manager Louis E. Miller, will speak at a Business Over Breakfast event hosted by Bryan Cave’s Atlanta office.  The breakfast begins at 7:30 am, and registration is available online.

Mr. Miller assumed the Hartsfield-Jackson GM position in 2010 and previously managed Tampa International Airport in Florida.  Chief among his immediate duties is overseeing completion of Hartsfield-Jackson’s new Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal, scheduled to open in 2012.  This million-square foot, 12-gate terminal will connect to the airport’s existing 28-gate international terminal in a plan to meet an annual international passenger volume the FAA projects to reach 13 million by 2015.
