Frontier Airlines appoints new CFO

Written by  Jonny Williamson Tuesday, 13 May 2014 12:30

Frontier Airlines has named James Dempsey as its CFO.

Having most recently served as treasurer for Ryanair, Dempsey brings almost two decades of experience in aviation finance to his new role.

The former treasurer played a large part in financing Ryanair’s growth, managing fuel costs and reducing operating costs, that all attributed to the airline now handling more than 80 million passenger per year.  

With Frontier currently refocusing to become an ultra-low cost airline, Chairman of the board, Bill Franke described Dempsey as a  “key addition to the new management team” whose leadership would be “instrumental” during the airlines transition.

Frontier has announced a spate of new appointments in recent weeks including Barry Piffle as airline president, Tyri Squyres as VP of marketing and new board members Robert Genise and Bernard Han.
