Mesa Air Group Inc. (Nasdaq: MESA) has named Torque Zubeck as its new CFO.
Zubeck joined Phoenix-based Mesa Air earlier this year as senior vice president of finance. He previous experience include executive roles at Alaska Airlines.
Zubeck takes over the CFO post from Michael Lotz.
Lotz has been serving as both CFO and president for Mesa Air. He will continue his role as president of the airline.
“Joining Mesa in March, Torque has quickly proven his value and he has the full confidence of me, the Board and the entire Mesa organization,” Lotz said. “His background at Alaska Airlines and his focus on execution of corporate initiatives has quickly made him a valuable addition to the executive team.”
Lotz has served as president and CFO at Mesa Air for more than 20 years.
“As we continue to progress as an airline, we are excited to welcome Torque into his new position,” said Jonathan Ornstein, chairman and CEO for the Arizona-based airline. “Mike has played an absolutely critical role at Mesa both as President and CFO for over 20 years. He successfully led the company’s financial restructuring and should be credited for Mesa’s efficiency and low cost structure that has allowed us to grow our large regional jet fleet significantly. We could not have done it without him.”
