Chamber picks new director

MOBILE, Ala. -- The executive director of the Mobile Airport Authority will succeed Win Hallett as president of the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce. Bill Sisson, who has led the airport authority since 2008, is the former vice president of economic development for the chamber. Hallett is retiring after 22 years leading the chamber. Chamber Chairman Mike Saxon said Sisson is "absolutely the right person for the job at the right time." Hallett will stay on at the chamber until a replacement for Sisson at the airport authority is found, officials said. (Source:, 04/19/13)
