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.
