Hawaiian Airlines President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Dunkerley has signed a three-year contract extension that will have him helming the airline through 2016.
Dunkerley’s “leadership in the development and successful execution of Hawaiian’s long term business plan has been exemplary, and the board is pleased that he will continue to lead the evolution of the business for years to come,” said Lawrence Hershfield, chairman of airline parent Hawaiian Holdings Inc., in a statement.
Dunkerley joined Hawaiian as president and chief operating officer on Jan. 1, 2003, and became president and CEO when the airline exited bankruptcy in June of 2005.
