Director of Miami International Airport resigns



The head of Miami International Airport submitted his resignation Tuesday, effective Feb. 1, according to Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez.

Emilio Gonzalez took the helm of the airport in April of 2013. Last year, he watched the international aviation hub handle a record 44.6 million passengers. Gonzalez presided over a $6.5 billion expansion of the airport, and oversaw four other airports in the Miami area.

“I am extremely proud of all the incredible work Emilio has achieved in the four and a half years he has been a part of the Miami-Dade County family,” Gimenez said in a press release announcing the resignation. “Although I am saddened by Emilio’s resignation, I understand he is eager to spend more time with his family and move forward in his professional career.”
