Advertiser Staff

Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airlines' president and CEO, has signed a three-year contract extension to continue leading the airline.

"Mark's leadership of Hawaiian through some extraordinary times has been exemplary, and the board is pleased that he will continue to lead our company through key phases of expansion in the coming years," said Lawrence S. Hershfield, chairman of Hawaiian Holdings Inc., the airlines' parent.

Since joining Hawaiian Airlines in 2003 as president and chief operating officer, Dunkerley has led the company to its most profitable years ever and a host of industry-recognized achievements.

Dunkerley has held executive aviation positions in North America and Europe for more than 20 years, including senior leadership positions at British Airways and Sabena Airlines Group in Belgium.

Hawaiian said it will disclose salary and other details of Dunkerley's new contract in the coming days in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
