nullDuluth's Airport Authority is under new leadership, months after the former executive director took another job.

Friday afternoon, the authority chose Tom Werner, the current Duluth International Airport Operations Director, to fill the spot.

Werner was one of three excellent candidates, according to Bob Pearson, the Duluth Airport Authority Board President.

"Tom's a great leader, Pearson told Eyewitness News. "He's got wonderful team-building skills, and a tremendous knowledge of airport operation and development at the airport in general."
