Mobile Airport authority

 

The Mobile Airport Authority is experiencing considerable growth as Airbus’s $600 million dollar Final Assembly line and its associated supply chain continue to expand.  Our existing industry and non-organic opportunities to compete for growth are intensifying as well.  The Authority is a fast paced and exciting place to work with an energized team that manages two Aeroparks.  One at Mobile Regional Airport with 3,000 acres and a new industrial park and the other at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookely with 1,700 acres and millions of square feet of industrial, aero, tech flex, office, and incubator space in our portfolio.   

Currently we have a very unique hybrid real estate/economic development opportunity open and we are looking for a new team member.  Reporting directly to the executive director this person will be responsible for the following key dimensions;

·         Contribute to our business development and lead generation strategy and plans

·         Provide significant leadership to our business development and economic development project management process     

·         Provide significant leadership to our deal structuring and closing efforts

·         Serve as a prospect construction/delivery liaison – Provide consultative approach with prospects to identify, conceptualize, and assist in translating requirements to our internal capital improvements team as well as contracted external partners while serving as an advocate and point of coordination for the prospect during construction 

·         Provide significant leadership to our industrial/corporate park redevelopment and development strategy and plans

·         Own our real estate portfolio support functions – Lease administration, contract administration, and guideline enforcement

·         Own our tenant relations, customer service, and existing industry business development program
