AMR Corp. has started preparing for an impending merger with US Airways, promoting Bev Goulet to senior vice president and chief integration officer.
Goulet, who had just finished leading the merger transition planning team, served as chief restructuring officer during AMR’s journey through bankruptcy. She held that position while working as vice president of corporate development and treasurer.
Peter Warlick will take over Goulet’s previous duties as treasurer, being promoted to vice president.
This week, the Department of Justice sent a notice to AMR for more information about its pending $11 billion merger with US Airways. If regulators approve the merger, it would create the largest airline in the United States, but the new American’s cargo presence would still rank far behind domestic frontrunner United.
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York and shareholders of US Airways must also approve the deal. - Jon Ross
