Robin Hayes will be replaced as CEO of JetBlue by Joanna Geraghty.
On February 12, JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes did resign, and Joanna Geraghty will take over as president of the company. Geraghty will become the first female Director of a major U.S. aircraft with the change. Joanna GeraghtyHayes announced on Monday that he is retiring on the tips of his doctor because the strain of managing JetBlue since early 2015 has taken a burden on his health. The decision is crucial for JetBlue, which is awaiting a national judge’s ruling on whether to proceed with its intended consolidation of Spirit Airlines. In the first three quarters of 2023, JetBlue reported a net loss of$ 207 million, including an operating expense of 6.6 % in the third quarter. Hayes expressed his confidence in Geraghty, JetBlue’s leader since 2018, to take his place. According to Robin Hayes,” She oversaw the creation and implementation of new business initiatives, guided the function through the most turbulent period in flight past, and has diligently worked to make JetBlue a better location for our crewmembers and customers.” Regarding our presented Spirit deal, she has been constantly involved in our integration planning. Geraghty has worked for JetBlue for about 20 years in a variety of professional roles, and Joanna and the staff have also created an effective plan for the company as we work to return to profitability. Geraghty was chosen by JetBlue’s board to achieve Hayes in a majority vote. Board head Peter Boneparth stated that Joanna is a “proven corporate leader and she is obviously the proper person to carry JetBlue forwards into this second chapter.” &# 13,
