Romulus, MI â€“ August 13, 2009: MetroAir today announced several staffing changes within the airline. These changes allow MetroAir to continue to provide excellent service to our pilots, keep the airline visible throughout the community and report airline statistics and details.
Effective immediately, Matt Reichelderfer will assume the position of Chief Financial Officer which has been vacant since Mr. Steel’s departure earlier this June. Reichelderfer has previously served as HR Manager and as Allegius Hub Manager. Mr. Reichelderfer will be in the hot seat for the next week as the Board has requested public financial reports to resume distribution by August 15th.
Alex Newton will be resuming the role of Human Resources Manager. Mr. Newton provided excellent service in the position once before. He was recently the Director of Media and Marketing. Mr Newton was quoted “I’m excitied to return to the Human Resources department. Along with Hub Managers, Human Resources has the closest ties with our pilots who define MetroAir.”
Colin McFadden will be taking over Mr. Newton’s position as Director of Media and Marketing. Mr. McFadden has good design and visual appreciation. He will not only be able to keep the news releases flowing through the community, but also help to shape the marketing campaigns as the airline moves forward.
Congratulations to all three as they shift their roles within the airline!
MetroAir will begin seeking applications to replace Mr. McFadden’s position of Allegius Hub Manager. Applications will be accepted from current pilots who are in good standing. Interested pilots should view the forums for additional instructions.
