Michael Rodyniuk has been named president and CEO of the northern airline effective July 15, company spokesperson Kevin Kablutsiak said in a news release.
Rodyniuk most recently served as specialty asset vice-president for Willis Lease Financing Corp., an aircraft engine and equipment leasing company.
He has three decades of experience in leadership positions in the airline industry, including CEO and president of West Wind Aviation and Wasaya Airways LP, where he led delivery of passenger and cargo services to remote northern communities.
