Egbe is a partner with the law firm of Huie Fernambucq & Stewart, LLP. She is a 2017 honoree of the Birmingham Business Journal’s Top 40 Under 40. Egbe is involved in several local service initiatives.
Egbe’s appointment is immediate. She will complete the term of previous board member Robert Earl Kelly. The six-year term began July 29, 2020 and expires July 29, 2026.
“The Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport is a critical part of the region’s economic competitiveness,” Mayor Woodfin said. “I look forward to Ms. Egbe’s public service on the board as we work collaboratively to serve our city and strengthen our region.”
The Birmingham Airport Authority was established in 1986 to manage the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport and continue its growth. The Birmingham Airport Authority is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors, appointed by the Mayor of the City of Birmingham and confirmed by the Birmingham City Council. The day to day operation is managed by the President and CEO and the Birmingham Airport Authority staff of over 100 employees within five departments.
