The new general manager of Newark Liberty International Airport was pushed out of his last job running the airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
James Gill was hired by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey after a national search and is set to start his job on January 27.
According to a report in the Grand Rapids Press, Gill resigned as CEO of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport in November 2018 after he received failing grades from his own leadership team during an annual review.
The newspaper obtained Gill’s scores through a Freedom of Information Act request. Airport officials told the Grand Rapids Press that Gill was leaving to pursue private sector opportunities.
The Grand Rapids Press is owned by Advance Publications, which also owns the Star-Ledger.
