Hawaiian Airlines’ long tenured CEO will retire from March 2018

Published on : Monday, November 20, 2017

HAWAIIAN AIRLINES LOGOHawaiian Airlines Chief Executive Officer Mark Dunkerley has announced that he will retire from the airline in March.

 

 

Dunkerley has been CEO of Hawaiian since 2005 and is one of the longest-tenured airline CEOs in the industry.

 

 

 

He has enabled great change for the island carrier, helping to transform the airline to its current state. Previously, he was an executive with British Airways before moving to the islands.

 

 

 

To fill the upcoming vacancy in the CEO position, Dunkerley named Hawaiian’s Chief Commercial Officer Mark Ingram to replace him.

 

 

Mark Ingram also has a long history with Hawaiian Airlines, joining the company as CFO in 2005, shortly after the carrier had emerged from bankruptcy protection.

 

 

 

In his current role, Mark Ingram oversees various aspects of the airline including marketing, sales and network planning.

 

 

 

The impact of Dunkerley with the airline will be remembered for years to come, as he led Hawaiian’s expansion to international destinations around the Pacific Rim and raised employee salaries, both boosted by falling fuel prices.

 

 

 

Under Dunkerley’s leadership, Hawaiian’s stock price has also increased dramatically, rising six-fold in a three year period.
