American Airlines Further Integrates Team

American Airlines is further integrating its people and communications team to create more positive and consistent team member experiences. In the new structure, Ron DeFeo will be promoted to senior vice president of Global Engagement and Patrick O’Keeffe will continue to oversee the people department in his role as senior vice president of People.

Both DeFeo and O’Keeffe will continue to report to Elise Eberwein, executive vice president of People and Communications.

Eberwein described Ron’s contributions, “Since DeFeo joined American three years ago, he has proven to be a fast learner and now has a broad base of knowledge about our complex and fast-paced business. He is built a team of communications professionals who participate in every large operational and commercial decision we make and who help guide our decision-making with a focus on supporting frontline team members and our customers. Expanding his responsibilities is both a reflection of the positive mark he has already made at American and an indication of the influence we want him to have on our future.”
