Director, Strategic Planning

Jaimi Tapp is the director of strategic planning. She oversees the strategic planning process, including plan development and implementation.

Mrs. Tapp has 25 years of aviation experience. She began her career at a small Atlanta-based engineering and planning firm focusing on airport master planning, aviation systems planning and airport noise issues.

She came to the City of Atlanta’s Department of Aviation in 1995 as the first noise and operations manager, and she quickly geared her efforts toward the master plan that gave ATL the fifth runway, the international terminal and the Rental Car Center. Mrs. Tapp did consulting work from 2002 to 2010, but she remained at ATL as a project manager and eventually helped lead the planning consultancy.

In 2010, Mrs. Tapp rejoined the ATL staff as one of eight members of the international terminal activation team charged with preparing operators, passengers and employees for opening day and beyond. In 2015, she became the first director of strategic planning at ATL.

Mrs. Tapp earned a degree in aviation management from Auburn University, where she also finished private pilot certification. An accredited International Airport Professional, she is also a board member of the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce and a student in Leadership Fayette.
