JetBlue Airways has announced the extension of president and CEO Dave Barger’s employment agreement by two years to 2015.
"On behalf of JetBlue’s board of directors, I want to applaud Dave for his tireless commitment to the airline and thank him for committing to leading our crewmembers well into our second decade," remarked Joel Peterson, chairman of JetBlue’s board of directors. "I look forward to seeing Dave’s people-first leadership style strengthen all that makes JetBlue unique as we grow and evolve."
Barger joined JetBlue in 1998, before the airline was named or had a single aircraft. He succeeded founder David Neeleman as chief executive officer in 2007.
