Piedmont's New President is Ready to Grow

New Piedmont president Lyle Hogg came from American Airlines with two big goals: get Piedmont's regional jet program safely in place and double the size of Piedmont’s fleet as quickly as feasible.  Now three weeks into the job, Lyle is rolling up his sleeves to get the work done. “We have a great opportunity for growth here,” said Lyle. “Our position as a wholly-owned subsidiary of American Airlines gives us great financial stability and a very bright future.
