The Dallas/Fort Worth Airport board met Monday evening in executive session to discuss the search process to select a successor to retiring chief executive Jeff Fegan.The board meeting, which started at 5 p.m., was conducted entirely in closed session at the airport’s headquarters building. There were no items scheduled for a vote on the meeting agenda.In January, Fegan announced that he will retire Sept. 1 after leading the airport for 19 years. During his tenure, the airport opened a new international terminal, a rental car facility and Skylink transportation system, and Fegan helped negotiate the end of the Wright Amendment flight restrictions at Dallas Love Field.DFW is in the midst of a $2 billion project to upgrade Terminals A, B, C, and E.The board hired executive search firm SpencerStuart to help with the job hunt. First-round interviews were conducted in May ,and the airport board said it expects to announce a finalist in July.The board’s next regularly scheduled monthly meeting will be on July 11, and a decision on Fegan’s replacement could come by then.
