Airline Shuffles Executives On Board Approval
US Airways announced Monday the promotion of Derek J. Kerr to
executive vice president and chief financial officer, and named
Brad Jensen as senior vice president and chief information officer.
Both officer appointments were approved last week by the company's
board of directors.
"We are very pleased to recognize the significant contributions
Derek has made to our company and welcome Brad to US Airways," said
US Airways Chairman and CEO Doug Parker. "Derek and Brad are
outstanding leaders and will play important roles in shaping the
future of our airline."
As executive vice president and chief financial officer, Kerr is
responsible for all corporate financial functions including
Treasury, Accounting, Financial Planning and Analysis, Tax, Risk
Management, Strategic Planning and Investor Relations.
He was named senior vice president and chief financial officer
in 2005, a position he held with America West Airlines prior to the
merger with US Airways. Kerr will continue to report to Parker.
Jensen brings more than 30 years of extensive application
development, planning, distribution, platform and systems knowledge
to the airline. He will lead a team of approximately 500
professionals responsible for overseeing all Information Technology
(IT)-related acquisitions and services.
He will be based at the airline's corporate headquarters in
Tempe and report to US Airways President Scott Kirby.
