Airport Authority begins planned leadership transition

Terry Blue

Terry Blue assumes President role, Scott Brockman to continue as CEO until December 31

MEMPHIS, TENN. (November 16, 2023) – As part of a carefully planned process, Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority (MSCAA) has announced that Terry Blue has transitioned into the role of President. Blue was selected to replace the retiring Scott Brockman as President and CEO by the MSCAA Board of Commissioners at their monthly meeting in April. Blue, who previously served as Executive Vice President of Operations and Chief Operating Officer, joined MSCAA in 2015 and has more than 25 years of aviation experience.

While Brockman’s retirement will be effective on December 31, 2023, he will now serve as CEO in a strategic planning capacity until that date. “The President / CEO succession plan has been in the works for well over a year. Chairman Keeney and I have agreed that the organization is stable and strong and that it is now time that I relinquish my authority as President and as CEO, become a resource to the executive management team,” said Brockman.  “I am extremely proud of how this process has gone and even more proud of the strength of the team that will carry on our mission.” 

“The Airport Authority is one of the largest economic engines in the entire region,” said Michael Keeney, Chairman of the MSCAA Board of Commissioners. “Thus, this transition is something that has been planned for months in an effort to keep the airport’s operations as seamless as possible as we close out 2023.”
