ExpressJet Airlines has appointed Alexandria Marren its new chief operating officer, following the retirement of Brad Holt.

She will oversee all of the Atlanta-based regional carrier’s operations and activities, including flight operations, inflight operations, maintenance and partner relationships, from 1 October, the airline says.

"Alex brings vast industry and operational leadership to this role," says Russell "Chip" Childs, president of ExpressJet parent SkyWest Inc, in a statement. "She is a smart, strategic and thoughtful leader, with a proven track record for excellence, accountability and execution, all of which will be essential to positioning ExpressJet Airlines for success."

Holt is retiring after more than 30 years at SkyWest and ExpressJet.

Marren was previously a consultant with the Futures Strategy Group and has held a variety of positions at United Airlines.

ExpressJet operates regional services for American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United.
