McMahon Named 21st Century Head | News
Retired Major General Robert McMahon is the new president and CEO of the 21st Century Partnership.
That's the Warner Robins community group that rallies support for Robins Air Force Base.
McMahon retired last week as commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center. He was named Thursday morning during a partnership meeting at the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins.
Former executive director Mary Therese Tebbe stepped down a few months ago to take a job with the Georgia National Guard in Atlanta.
Major General Rick Goddard will hand over the reigns to McMahon in September. He says McMahon will have a full plate when he takes over but believes his leadership skills will help him get the job done.
He says, "His ease working with people, his persona in the community, all of those things go to make him the perfect choice for this."
McMahon will have a support staff backing him but says he hopes to have help from the central Georgia community.
"We have to think globally. We have to think as a group as opposed to individual areas," McMahon says.
The 21st Century Partnership also announced their new role as a non-profit organization. They have already selected a 501(c)(3) board, and are in the process of building a 501(c)(4) group.
