School of Medicine official to head airport authority
A UNC School of Medicine administrator will lead efforts to establish a new Orange County airport authority.
The 15-member airport authority will be led jointly by UNC-Chapel Hill and the UNC Health Care System with representation from Orange County and its municipalities.
Kevin FitzGerald executive associate dean for finance and administration in the medical school was named by Chancellor Holden Thorp and UNC School of Medicine Dean Bill Roper to oversee the organization and initial work of the authority.
