Bunch of United news lately.
As of May 2020, current CEO of United, Oscar Munoz, will switch into the role of Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors while Scott Kirby becomes the new Chief Executive Officer:
“With United in a stronger position than ever, now is the right time to begin the process of passing the baton to a new leader,” Munoz said. “One of my goals as CEO was to put in place a successful leadership transition for United Airlines. I brought Scott to United three years ago, and I am confident that there is no one in the world better equipped to lead United to even greater heights. It has been the honor of my career to lead the 95,000 dedicated professionals who serve United’s customers every day. I look forward to continuing to work closely with Scott in the months ahead and supporting the company’s ongoing success in my new role.”
Notably, Scott Kirby left American Airlines’ President role to join United Airlines as President in August 2016.
Is this a good change? Depends. What do you guys think of this?
