Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport
With more than 32 years of airport management experience, Louis E. Miller has a
reputation for providing high-quality facilities and services while maintaining
a low cost structure. Miller, who assumed the position of general manager for Hartsfield-Jackson
Atlanta International Airport in September 2010, also has a proven track record
for effectively responding to changing economic and security conditions.
Miller’s vision for Hartsfield-Jackson is to provide world-class air transportation
services in collaboration with all of the Airport’s partners, including the airlines,
the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the Federal Aviation Administration,
concessionaires and all Airport tenants. Among his major priorities is the completion
of the Airport’s new international terminal, the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International
Terminal, scheduled to open in 2012. Miller is the former executive director and
CEO of Tampa International Airport (TPA), where he served from 1996 until spring
2010. In that role, he also oversaw three general aviation facilities – Peter O.
Knight, Plant City and Tampa Executive – and more than $1.3 billion in capital improvements.
Several major capital projects completed with Miller’s direction in Tampa included:
- New 14-gate concourse (Airside E)
- New 15-gate concourse (Airside C)
- Refurbishment of the all three levels of the terminal building
- Expansion of parking facilities from 11,000 to 25,000 spaces
- New air cargo facilities for passenger and cargo airlines
Under Miller’s leadership, along with full cooperation of the TSA, TPA was one of
the first airports in the United States after the September 11, 2001 attacks to
develop and install an outbound baggage handling system with a fully-integrated
inline security system for checked baggage. In addition, Miller’s team expanded
the number of security lanes at the four security checkpoints from 9 to 27.
A community-oriented professional, Miller served on several boards in Tampa, including
the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce and the Policy Committee of the Tampa Hillsborough
Economic Development Corporation. He was chairman in 1994 of the North American
region of Airports Council International (ACI) and currently serves as treasurer
of ACI worldwide.
He started his career as an internal auditor for Salt Lake City Corporation and
subsequently became a partner in a public accounting firm. Following that, he served
for five years as deputy director of airports for the Salt Lake City Airport Authority
and was responsible for finance and administration of the Airport Authority. He
was promoted to executive director and served for 14 years as CEO.
A native of Salt Lake City, Miller was inducted into the Utah Travel Council’s Tourism
Hall of Fame, received the 1993 Freedom of Enterprise Award from the Utah Association
of Certified Public Accountants and was presented with the 1994 Service to the Industry
Award from the Utah Chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America.
Other honors include: 2009 Patriot Award from the Florida Committee for Employer
Support of the Guard and Reserve, 2007 Gonzmart Family Ambassador Award for community
service and hospitality, Southwest Airlines’ 2006 Good Neighbor Award, 2006 Good
Government Award from the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, 2005
Spirit Award from the Hillsborough County Affirmative Action Council and 2003 Outstanding
Public Administrator Award from the American Society for Public Administration.
Miller was educated at the University of Utah and is an accounting graduate of Stevens-Henager
Business College in Salt Lake City. A licensed CPA, he also spent four years in
the United States Army, earning the rank of Sergeant E-5.
