UNITED CONTINENTAL’S CEO MUNOZ WILL RETURN
United Continental Holdings said Sunday that CEO Oscar Munoz will return to work fulltime on March 14 after suffering a heart attack in October and undergoing a heart transplant in early January. Munoz, will resume all of his duties at that time, the company said. He has already been participating actively in all major corporate decisions and meeting frequently with employees, shareholders, and other stakeholders during his recovery, the company said. He made a surprise appearance on the company’s fourth- quarter earnings conference call in January. Munoz stepped into the airline’s most senior role in September after previous CEO, Jeff Smisek, was ousted in the midst of an inquiry into corruption. Munoz took office after a period of chronic delays and computer issues for the airline.
