Southwest Airlines has announced that Captain Jeff Martin has been named the carrier’s first vice-president of the Operations Coordination Center.
Martin began his career with Southwest Airlines in 1990 as a pilot. Though most recently serving as the assistant director of operations, Martin maintains his status as a Southwest captain/check pilot and civilian flight instructor. He was instrumental in leading the Southwest Airlines RNP programme and numerous change initiatives within flight operations and is currently leading the evaluation efforts as Southwest’s business delivery leader for the Boeing 737-800 integration project.
"We are pleased to have Jeff leading our extraordinary OCC Team as we head into an extremely exciting time for Southwest," remarked Greg Wells, Southwest Airlines senior vice-president operations. "Jeff’s leadership, knowledge, and vision will be key as we prepare the operation for 2011 and beyond."
