Former United Airlines executive Christopher Bowers is expected to be named the new trustee for troubled carrier Hawaiian Airlines after the resignation in June of John Monahan after only 22 days in the role. Monahan, a former Liberty House executive, was appointed on 30 May after a US bankruptcy court ruled that a trustee should be appointed to oversee Hawaiian's reorganisation. The move came after Boeing Capital filed a motion accusing Hawaiian chairman and chief executive John Adams of insider dealing. William Swanson has been promoted to chief executive and president of Raytheon, replacing Daniel Burnham. Burnham will remain as company chairman. Swanson was formerly president of Raytheon Electronic Systems. John Young will succeed James Sanford as vice-president (VP) contracts and pricing at Northrop Grumman. Donald Winter, president of Northrop Grumman Missile Systems, has taken the extra post of lead executive for missile defence. Joint venture Bell/Agusta Aerospace has named Louis Bartolotta, formerly VP marketing for Agusta-Westland, as managing director.
