Hawaiian Airlines has promoted Ron Anderson-Lehman to executive vice president and chief administrative officer. He previously served as senior vice president and chief information officer, a position he held since joining the company in June 2012.

In his new role, he will take on direct oversight of the airline's Human Resources, Legal and Strategic Procurement departments while retaining his responsibility for the Information Technology, Facilities and Strategy & Transformation teams.

"In the 18 months since he joined us, Ron has driven many key initiatives at Hawaiian Airlines including significant IT improvements and the renovation of our corporate headquarters," said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airlines president and chief executive officer. "We are keen to make use of his managerial talent over a wider footprint within our company."

Prior to joining Hawaiian Airlines, Anderson-Lehman served as senior vice president and chief information officer at Continental Airlines, a position he held from 2006 until the airline's merger with United Airlines in 2010. During that time, he was responsible for the development, deployment and operation of strategic systems to meet the computing and decision support needs of the various business units of Continental.

Anderson-Lehman began his career in aviation in 1986 as a computer programmer for United Airlines. From there, he moved into roles of increasing responsibility with Covia and Galileo International before joining Continental in 2000 as managing director of technology and being named vice president and CIO in 2004.

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from Iowa State University. Anderson-Lehman was recognized with the Top 10 Leaders & Innovators Award at the 2008 Global CIO Executive Summit.
