A spokesman for Mayor Kasim Reed said Monday that Louis Miller is planning to retire on Jan. 3. Miller has worked as general manager of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport since Sept. 27, 2010 and oversaw the opening of the Maynard H. Jackson International Terminal.

Miller has worked at the Tampa International airport, and was executive director of the Salt Lake City Department of Airports.
