Stephanie Mullenger has left the property management team at Manchester Airports Group after three years to pursue other interests.
A joint statement issued by the airport on Friday afternoon said: "Stephanie Mullenger, general manager property, and MAG, jointly announce that Stephanie has resigned. The recent changes at MAG, and the successful positioning as preferred bidder for Stansted Airport, has allowed Stephanie the opportunity to explore other challenges within the property market."
An announcement about her replacement will be made in due course.
Mullenger joined MAG Developments, the commercial property arm of Manchester Airports Group, as business development director in 2009.
In November 2011 she took on a new role as general manager property, overseeing MAG Developments' £335m portfolio following the appointment of its former managing director, John Atkins, as MAG's Airport City director.
She previously worked for Urban Splash, Colliers International, Co-operative Retail Services and National Australia Bank.
Mullenger declined to respond when contacted directly by Place.
