Airport's ex-CEO lands job at Gary Chicago International

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Former Indianapolis Airport Authority CEO John Clark has landed a six-month job in a business development role at Gary Chicago International Airport. Clark will earn $5,000 per month in his new job, WTHR-TV reported.

Clark left the Indianapolis airport job last month after the airport declined to renew his contract. He had been chief executive for three years.

IBJ reported March 10 that former Clark and two top executives last year spent more than $67,000 on trips to conferences and business development destinations including Brazil, Denmark, Greece, Morocco and Switzerland.

Clark said many of the trips were related to his role with an industry trade group.

Clark left his job in Indianapolis with a year’s salary as severance—$270,000—plus remaining unpaid vacation days.

    I guess we could had him for expenses alone.
    Indy knew Clark was a bonus points hire as his history was lackluster. Shame.
  • It's Just A Consulting Job
    His title is not CEO at Gary, and it is a 6-month minor contract position. Obviously, he is living off his $270,000 severance and just taking this little gig to stay busy while he looks for another job.

    Giving his track record, I am sure he will find another airport board he can sucker into hiring him on as a CEO for a big salary and all-expense paid trips around the world.
  • No longer an exec
    Nice move DOWN! Sure you can become the CEO of some small airport with 2 hangars.

    1. Liberals do not understand that marriage is not about a law or a right ... it is a rite of religous faith. Liberals want "legal" recognition of their homosexual relationship ... which is OK by me ... but it will never be classified as a marriage because marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. You can gain / obtain legal recognition / status ... but most people will not acknowledge that 2 people of the same sex are married. It's not really possible as long as marriage is defined as one man and one woman.

    2. That second phrase, "...nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens..." is the one. If you can't understand that you lack a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and I can't help you. You're blind with prejudice.

    3. Why do you conservatives always go to the marrying father/daughter, man/animal thing? And why should I keep my sexuality to myself? I see straights kissy facing in public all the time.

    4. I just read the XIV Amendment ... I read where no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property ... nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens ... I didn't see anything in it regarding the re-definition of marriage.

    5. I worked for Community Health Network and the reason that senior leadership left is because they were not in agreement with the way the hospital was being ran, how employees were being treated, and most of all how the focus on patient care was nothing more than a poster to stand behind. Hiring these analyst to come out and tell people who have done the job for years that it is all being done wrong now...hint, hint, get rid of employees by calling it "restructuring" is a cheap and easy way out of taking ownership. Indiana is an "at-will" state, so there doesn't have to be a "reason" for dismissal of employment. I have seen former employees that went through this process lose their homes, cars, faith...it is very disturbing. The patient's as well have seen less than disireable care. It all comes full circle.
