United’s Munoz to Return as CEO on March 14
Munoz was hospitalized last October after suffering a heart attack, and subsequently underwent a heart transplant operation. He has slowly returned to his duties since receiving the transplant
“Oscar has already been participating actively in all major corporate decisions and meeting frequently with employees, shareholders, and other stakeholders during his recovery,” the Chicago-based airline said in a statement.
The transplant took place in January of this year.
“I am thrilled to return full-time to a job and the employees I love,” Munoz said, noting that, since taking the job, the airline “has been focused on our employees, improving the operation and the customer experience.”
