Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT) today announced several senior management promotions, with Sean Menke named senior vice president of marketing and Ann Block named senior vice president of inflight and administrative services.
Menke, who came to Frontier’s marketing team in 1998, was named vice president of marketing and planning in 2000. In his new role, he’ll continue to lead all planning, scheduling, pricing, revenue, branding, and advertising initiatives, and will also take on Frontier’s customer service and station operations. Reporting to Menke will be Greg Aretakis, who was promoted to vice president of planning and revenue management. Aretakis has been with Frontier for approximately one year as senior director of planning and revenue management, and, prior to Frontier, worked as vice president of market planning for Vanguard, was the co-founder and vice president for Shuttle America Corporation, and served as vice president of schedule planning for Continental Airlines.
Block, who came to Frontier in 1999, was previously vice president of human resources and inflight services, a role in which she oversaw inflight, training and human resources. In her new role, Block will continue to oversee those areas as well as corporate communications and customer relations. Block also welcomes a new director of communications, Andrew Hudson, who will oversee the corporate communications group, including external and internal communications, government relations, community affairs, and event planning. Hudson came to Frontier earlier this year as senior manager of government and community relations, after eight years as spokesperson for Denver Mayor Webb.
“As we continue to grow our business and get ready for several years of continued expansion, it’s critical that we structure our senior leadership team to respond to that growth,” said Frontier President & CEO Jeff Potter. “Ann, Sean, Greg and Andrew are proven leaders who, along with Frontier’s 3,700 employees, will guide Frontier through the challenges and victories of the coming years.”
