Pinnacle Airlines Corporation has named Ted Christie as its new vice-president and CFO, succeeding Peter Hunt who left the company to join Virgin America.
Christie, a partner at Vista Strategic Group LLC in Denver, is expected to begin his new duties by 25 July 2011. Also, he was previously senior vice-president and CFO of Frontier Airlines where he worked with new Pinnacle Airlines Corporation president and CEO Sean Menke.
"Ted was a key player in helping [Frontier] manage the significant challenges we faced. His experience in the airline and financial industries makes him a perfect fit to lead the strong, experienced financial team we have in place," remarked Menke.
Christie was promoted to senior vice-president at Frontier in 2008 after serving as vice-president of finance. He joined Frontier in 2002. Prior to his senior posts at Frontier, he was vice-president of finance at a Denver asset-based finance institution and was an economist for the Arizona taxing authority.
