Torno Moves On, Butler Moves Up

Torno Moves On Butler Moves Up

Doug Parker     Senior Vice President of International and Cargo at American Airlines Art Torno steps down after a stellar 38-year career at the carrier, drawing praise from AA CEO Doug Parker.
      “During Art’s long career with American, he has helped establish the airline as a leading international carrier. His leadership and vision have been instrumental in supporting our people and strengthening our presence around the world,” Doug Parker said.       

Torno Watch Lifted Everyone

      “American Airlines is a better place because of Art Torno, and all of us who have worked with him are better people. We wish him the best in his well-deserved retirement,” Mr. Parker concluded.


The Butler Did It

Kerry H. Philipovitch      Stepping into the spotlight is Jim Butler, who was immediately named Senior Vice President of International and Cargo.
      Jim Butler is a 21-year veteran of the company, but his most recent claim to fame—according to his new boss, Kerry Hester Philipovitch, (right) Senior Vice President, Customer Experience—is that he “has helped strengthen Cargo’s contribution to the airline and successfully led Cargo’s integration process, becoming the first operation at American to fully merge.
      “As the leader of American Airlines Cargo, Jim understands the importance and the value of our unrivaled international network and the passion and enthusiasm of American’s people around the globe,” Mrs. Philipovitch said.

Art Of Jim

      “Jim’s experience, leadership, and commitment make him the ideal leader to build on Art’s legacy of supporting our fantastic global team and delivering the best experience to our international customers, while continuing his efforts to further the growth of our Cargo business,” Kerry Philipovitch said.
      It’s a ringing endorsement, as a smart, good guy moves up in the airline business just as a class act exits stage left to what is hoped by many to be a gracious life.
      It’s the way it ought to be.
