After more than 14 years with Southwest Airlines, Glenn Hipp, Director of Fuel Purchasing and Inventory Management announces his resignation, effective August 24, 2007.
“After doing amazing things with amazing people like you, it is with some regret, some excitement and a great deal of anticipation that I announce my resignation from Southwest Airlines,” he told his colleagues.
Hipp said he will be joining the crew members at JetBlue to build a fuel department “from the ground up.”
“I have enjoyed and will continue to enjoy working with you. I am looking forward to this awesome opportunity. But fear not! Southwest's most excellent fuel management group will continue to provide the same high grade level of service you've come to expect from Southwest.”
Hipp is the latest Southwest employee to leave for rival low-cost carrier JetBlue, which was founded by former Southwest executive David Neeleman in 2001.
