NEW YORK, May 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Airlines today announced that Jim Carter, Vice President-Eastern Sales Division, will also head up American's Manhattan-based Greater New York Sales Office. The change is effective immediately. Carter will continue to lead Eastern Sales, which includes Boston, Washington, D.C., and Miami, together with the remainder of the East Coast and Canada.
"Jim Carter brings a wealth of experience and talent to the task of heading up American Airlines sales effort in one of our most important U.S. cities," said Kurt Stache, American's Vice President and General Sales Manager. "His leadership will be instrumental in maintaining and expanding our position in the key New York market."
In his career of nearly 30 years with American Airlines, Carter has worked in a variety of marketing, sales and numerous other leadership positions.
Carter began his career at American's corporate headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas, working in American's Revenue Management department. He also worked on several revolutionary projects that have become American Airlines mainstay programs, including AAdvantage, the industry's first and largest frequent flyer program, and AAirpass, the first corporate pre-pay mileage program. Carter was also involved in the development of American's corporate travel and travel management programs.
He went on to become Regional Manager in Boston, before being promoted to his current position. Carter now leads the Division's sales and marketing efforts and is responsible for American's corporate and travel agency relationships, programs, routes, division profitability and business development.
Active in community affairs, Carter works with several New England charities and giving organizations such as the Jimmy Fund and the Dana Farber Cancer Research, with which the fund is affiliated. Jim also sits on the Board of Directors for the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau. He, his wife and their three children currently live in the Boston area.
With his new responsibilities, Carter will split his time between American's New England and New York Sales offices, before eventually relocating to New York.
