Ned Walker to Return to Delta as Chief Communications Officer

John E. Ned Walker, who served as Deltas Senior Vice President and Chief Communications Officer during a period of growth and transition for the company, is returning to Delta in a similar position with increased responsibilities, effective 1 January 2017.

He will join as a member of the Delta Leadership Committee and will report to Deltas Chief Executive Officer, Edward H. Bastian.

I am delighted to bring Neds talent and expertise back to Delta. As we continue to take Delta to the next level, Neds knowledge of the company and the industry coupled with his deep experience in communicating our progress and success will be enormously invaluable, said Bastian, who became CEO in May.

Walker served as Deltas Chief Communications Officer from 2008 to 2014 after 25-plus years elsewhere in the airline industry, and upon retiring continued as a senior advisor to the Delta executive team.

Walker takes over the CCO post from Kevin Shinkle, who has decided to leave Delta and return to the Northeast to be near his family.

I want to express my appreciation to Kevin for all he has accomplished since he joined our team over two years ago. We wish him well in his future endeavors, Bastian said.
