JOHN D. CLARK III NAMED DIRECTOR OF DETROIT CITY AIRPORT

 DETROIT, March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Mayor Coleman A. Young said today he is appointing John D. Clark III of Sacramento, Calif., as director of the Detroit City Airport, effective March 24.
 Clark has served as manager of Airport Properties for Sacramento Metropolitan Airport Authority, which operates four airports, since 1989. In that position, he has been responsible for developing new business, establishing rates and fees, and negotiating and administering contracts with tenants at the three airports. Among his accomplishments are the negotiating of a 20-year on-airport rental car concession agreement which will generate more than $3 million in annual revenues for the airport.
 Clark also is a member of the board of directors of the American Association of Airport Executives.
 "Mr. Clark is being hired at the completion of a nationwide search for a new director for City Airport," the mayor said. "He has received high recommendations from those who work with him. They particularly emphasized his ability to develop positive relationships with the communities that neighbor the airports at which he has worked. I believe he will make an outstanding director for City Airport as we continue the process of future expansion."
 Prior to moving to Sacramento, Clark was assistant to the director of the Department of Airports for the city of Fresno from 1985-89. His responsibilities included serving as airport manager for the Chandler downtown airport in Fresno.
 While at Fresno, he administered an air trade development program that successfully recruited Southwest Airlines to fly into Fresno.
 During this time he also became active in a major statewide effort to promote organ donations for transplants when his young son nearly died of liver failure. He successfully recruited such individuals as the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Bill Cosby, as well as the NFL Players Association, to help with raising public awareness to the need for donors. As a result of his efforts, his son received the needed transplant and is now doing well.
 Prior to working in Fresno, Clark was an air traffic controller in the United States Air Force from 1981-85.
 In 1988, he was named as one of five outstanding young Californians and was chosen as charter president of the West Fresno Jaycees.
 He was awarded a bachelor of arts degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 1983 and a master of public administration from Golden Gate University in 1985.
