WASHINGTON, November 9, 2020 – Attributed to A4A President & CEO Nicholas E. Calio:
A4A is grateful for Brad Tilden’s leadership as Chairman of the Board, especially amid the most challenging period in the history of the U.S. airline industry. Over the years on A4A’s Board of Directors, Brad has made significant contributions and had a tremendous impact. With Alaska Airlines, Brad has bolstered the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability, invested in the employees and enhanced the customer experience. Brad is a talented leader, a valued partner and, most of all, a trusted friend who garnered support and admiration from customers, employees and business leaders — even his staunchest competitors. Those of us in the U.S. airline industry will miss him on a daily basis, and we wish him all the best as he begins a new chapter.
