The Jackson Municipal Airport Authority (JMAA) has announced that Rosa M. Beckett has been appointed to the position of chief executive officer.
Beckett previously served as chief administrative officer (CAO) at the Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA), operating four airports covering northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. She brings over two decades of experience in the aviation industry, including as CAO of Fraport USA.
“I am excited to welcome Ms. Rosa M. Beckett to Jackson as the new CEO of the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority,” Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba stated. “She is a talented and groundbreaking choice to move our airports to the next level of aviation in Mississippi and is well-suited to continue the impressive growth we have experienced these last few years.”
Beckett — who was selected from over 30 applicants seeking the CEO position — specializes in airport strategic planning and implementation, budget strategy, system assessment and change management, human resources and talent development, business intelligence and analytics, stakeholder and client relations, as well as aviation consulting.
“We are confident that Ms. Beckett possesses all the qualities necessary to have a very positive and professional impact on our organization and the entire Jackson/Capital region,” Warren T. Herring, Chairman of the JMAA Board of Commissioners, said. “Our two airports play vital roles in the economic development of central Mississippi, and we envision the progress and growth continuing for many years under the leadership of Ms. Beckett.”
