UAL Corporation (OTCBB:UALAQ.QB), parent of United Airlines, today named Paul R. Lovejoy senior vice president, general counsel and secretary, effective immediately.
Lovejoy, 48, replaces Francesca M. Maher, who is leaving United to rejoin the law firm of Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw.
Lovejoy is currently a partner with the law firm of Weil, Gotshal & Manges in New York, with a practice area concentration in corporate and transactional matters. Prior to joining the law firm in 1999, he was assistant general counsel for Texaco Inc., and before that, a partner at the law firm of Squire, Sanders & Dempsey.
“Paul’s experience in complex business transactions, corporate finance and corporate restructurings will be of great benefit as we continue to advance our plan to exit Chapter 11 as a strong, profitable enterprise,” said Glenn Tilton, United’s chairman, president and chief executive officer.
“Fran Maher leaves United after a decade of dedicated service through some of our most difficult periods,” Tilton continued. “We thank her and wish her well in her return to private practice.”
United operates more than 1,700 flights a day on a route network that spans the globe. News releases and other information about United can be found at the company’s website atÊ www.united.com.
