ARLINGTON, Va., June , 2002—US Airways has promoted Rosemary G. Murray to vice president, government affairs, filling the position created by the retirement of company veteran Ronald Reeves
Murray has served as director, government affairs for US Airways since 1989, and has handled a variety of state, federal and international government affairs responsibilities. Prior to joining US Airways, she held similar positions with Pan Am for almost 20 years.
“Rosemary has been a valuable asset in our government affairs efforts for over a decade, and her long-time relationships in Washington will be even more important as we work closely with policymakers during our restructuring,” said US Airways President and Chief Executive Officer Dave Siegel. “Just as importantly, she has a proven track record of working closely and cooperatively with our labor union representatives, and moving forward, I want to solidify that working relationship on issues of mutual interest and benefit.”
In conjunction with Murray’s promotion, US Airways also named Tammy L. Lee to fill the position of managing director, corporate affairs. Lee will work with Murray on implementing the airline’s government affairs agenda. Lee comes to US Airways from Sun Country Airlines, where she served as vice president of marketing and corporate affairs. She previously had served in communications positions for Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Hubert H. Humphrey III and U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan.
“We are thrilled that Tammy has agreed to join our team, and her experience will allow her to make an immediate impact on our corporate affairs efforts,” said Siegel.
