MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Montgomery Regional Airport’s board of directors has announced the resignation of Executive Airport Director Marshall J. Taggart Jr.

According to the board, Taggert’s resignation was effective on May 31.

“Serving as Executive Airport Director for the Montgomery Regional Airport has been the most rewarding professional challenge of my career, and I leave with a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment,” Taggart said. “I am leaving to be with my immediate family and finish my academic research related to my dissertation. I am extremely thankful for the support and guidance provided by the Montgomery Airport Authority’s Board of Directors and employees over the last 2 years as Montgomery Regional Airport achieved much success.”

Taggart came to Montgomery Regional with an impressive resume. He had nearly two decades of experience in the aviation industry, having most recently served as the Deputy Airport Director of DeKalb Peachtree Airport, Georgia’s second busiest airport, before his 2019 arrival in Montgomery.
