Mr. Charles Duncan has been appointed President of Continental Micronesia. Previously, Duncan served as managing director of Asia Pacific Sales & Marketing of Continental Airlines, based in Tokyo. He has also been elected to the board of directors of Continental Micronesia.

In his new role, Duncan will relocate to Guam and be Continental’s senior leader in the Asia Pacific region. He will be responsible for sales & marketing for Continental Micronesia and local Asia Pacific sales for Continental Airlines. He will also oversee all governmental affairs and tourism issues with local leaders and act as the key liaison between Continental Micronesia and Continental Airlines.

Duncan will report directly to Dave Hilfman, Continental’s senior vice president – Worldwide Sales, and indirectly to Mark Moran, Continental’s executive vice president – Operations, to ensure close coordination between Continental Micronesia and all Continental divisions.

“Charles’ wealth of experience and strong leadership will serve us well,” Hilfman said. “Our business has continued to grow in the Micronesia and Asia Pacific region, despite a tough business environment. Charles has been instrumental in helping us design and implement a successful Asia Pacific strategy that has benefited both Continental and its customers.”

“My family and I are excited to be coming back to Guam, for what is truly a dream come true,” said Duncan. “Continental Micronesia is a special family, much like the region it serves, and I am humbled to be leading such a unique and outstanding team of professionals.”

Duncan joined Continental in 1996 and has held management positions at Continental Micronesia since 1997, including the last 10 years in Japan. He received a bachelor’s degree in economics and international studies from the University of North Carolina and a master’s in business administration from Harvard Business School.

Continental inaugurated daily non-stop services between Shanghai and New York this March. The airline also increased weekly flights from Guam to Cairns in March, and in December it plans to reintroduce direct flights from Guam to Osaka’s Kansai International Airport in Japan.
