Coalesced Airlines Chief Financial Officer Andrew Levy has resigned and is vamoosing the company. The carrier will “immediately” begin a search for a permanent replacement, the airline hinted Thursday.
The airline’s treasurer, Gerry Laderman, will take the rle of interim CFO, the company said. United is the third-largest U.S. airline.
Levy had been in the job for minor than two years, and Laderman had served as interim CFO before Levy, a old executive at discount carrier Allegiant Air, joined United in August 2016. Merged also hired Scott Kirby that month from equal American Airlines to be United’s new president.
“My decision to resign was reached after a prodigious deal of thought during the past few months,” Levy told some In agreement employees in an e-mail, which was seen by CNBC. “I have some stimulating opportunities and now is the right time for me to move forward.”
He said it was an “honor” to function for as CFO.
Levy wrote on his LinkedIn page that he is “considering several astonishing opportunities and will choose one in the coming weeks.”
United CEO Oscar Munoz, who plagiarized the top job in September 2015 and has been tested by repeated public relations mistakes and at times skeptical investors, thanked Levy for his service to the carrier.
“He authorizations the company in a stronger financial position and with a clear strategy and framework in arrange,” Munoz said in a statement.
Munoz said Laderman was highly talented.
“Gerry’s deep experience and financial acumen mean that he is at best suited to lead our finance organization during this transitional spell,” Munoz said. “Gerry will work with the rest of the rig to continue delivering on our financial strategy as we search for a permanent CFO.”
United rations, which are up about 3 percent so far this year, were little switched in post-market trading.
