American Airlines announced multiple promotions of executives involved in the airline’s customer service team earlier in the week.

Cedric Rockamore was promoted from managing director of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport to the position of vice president, Philadelphia, where he will be responsible for overseeing operations at American’s hub there.

Joe Taney, who served as vice president, Philadelphia, will become vice president, hubs and gateways, responsible for operations in Charlotte, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C. Rockamore will report to Taney in his new position.

Tim Ahern, vice president, hubs, will continue in that role, albeit with a narrower focus, overseeing Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Miami.  He is tasked with focusing on American’s move to a banked flight schedule at these three hubs.

Finally, Patricia Hollinrake, who currently is responsible for overseeing the airline’s stations in the southeast region, was promoted to managing director, DCA, the position formerly held by Rockamore.

“These leaders bring a wealth of experience and talents to our team at American Airlines and represent the strong emphasis we’ve placed on operations performance and customer service in our hub markets and across our global network,” said Doug Parker, the airline’s CEO, adding that the newly-promoted managers are “results-driven, people-oriented leaders.”
