PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The CEO of Philadelphia International Airport is retiring next year.

Mayor Michael Nutter announced Monday that 53-year-old Mark Gale would be stepping down from his post as CEO in early 2016.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (https://bit.ly/21qvUoZ ) Gale was the CEO for seven of his nearly 28 years working at the airport. During his tenure, he’s worked in a variety of jobs overseeing airport operations and facilities.

Nutter appointed Gale CEO in 2009 and says he’s an outstanding leader. Gale says he’s enjoyed his time at the airport and is looking forward to the next phase in his life.

It’s unclear who Mayor-elect Jim Kenney wants to run the airport. He takes office in January.
