Duncan Dee Has Had A 15 Year Career With The Airline
Air Canada announced Wednesday that Duncan Dee, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer will be taking early retirement this fall following a 15-year career with the airline.
"Duncan's contribution to Air Canada during the course of his career has been very significant," said Calin Rovinescu, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Duncan has held many different roles at Air Canada over his career, but in his role as Chief Operating Officer, he has helped both shape our strategic direction and lead the airline through the challenges of transformation, while continuing to build on our worldwide reputation for safety and customer service excellence. Under his leadership, Air Canada achieved significant operational and cost efficiencies, including greater fleet productivity and CASM reduction, while at the same time improving customer satisfaction levels. Duncan has agreed to remain available to Air Canada after his retirement this fall and the Board joins me in thanking him for his ongoing dedication."
"It has been a true honor to have been a member of the Air Canada team for the past 15 years and, in particular, to have had the opportunity to contribute to our achievements over the past three years as Chief Operating Officer," said Mr. Dee. "I know that these achievements will help transform Air Canada into a stronger, more sustainable airline in the years to come."
Air Canada is Canada's largest domestic and international airline serving more than 175 destinations on five continents.
