Such an honor to be awarded 2017 Atlanta Air Cargo Person of the Year.
On Monday, June 26 2016, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport officials, as well as the Metro Atlanta Chamber and the Atlanta Air Cargo Association hosted there annual recognition to the companies and employees who create a positive impact on the cargo community around the area. As well as other import individuals that were there, two people stood out over the others, Elliott Paige and Roosevelt Council, Jr. Mr. Paige is the director of air service and strategy for the most busiest airport in all the United States, as well as directs under Mayor Kasim Reed for any type of discretion or concerns. Mr Council is the Deputy General Manager, as well as the Chief Financial Officer for Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. With these high ranking officials in the building, it shows the importance of the event as well as the impact the awards have to the Atlanta cargo community. During the luncheon, very few awards were given out to select companies to show the airports appreciation, but only one single person out of the whole community was chosen for their impact to the scene. Out of every employee, everyone company owner, every donor, anybody that has made an appearance in the cargo community, only one person was selected as the 2017 Atlanta Air Cargo Person of the Year, and that person, was Justin Taylor. This award was awarded to the person who not only made a large impact in the community, but also proved excellence in his trade and leadership to his fellow peers and coworkers. This award was presented by Mr. Paige to Justin to show that this wasn't only was this a small community decision, but as well as a decision that was made very carefully and precisely by the people that see it most fit.
