GOT WINNERS? Southwest Airlines Does!

Frequent Flyer B

Yesterday, PR NEWS held its annual PR News’ PR People Awards at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.  The awards showcase the top talent, innovators, and PR professionals who work day in and day out to take communication to the next level.  

We are thrilled to announce that several of our colleagues here at Southwest were recognized for their outstanding performance and accomplishments:  

Christi Day - Tweeter of the Year

Many of you may know Christi as the voice behind our @SouthwestAir Twitter feed.  With her effervescent personality and instinctive knack for social media, Christi has built a following for Southwest Airlines on Twitter nearly one million strong.  And that’s just a small part of what she does for us everyday.

Chris Mainz - Spokesperson of the Year

With nearly 10 years of service at Southwest Airlines, Chris knows our Company inside and out.  His depth and breadth of knowledge allows him to explain even the most complex of issues in a way that anyone can understand.  Fuel hedging, anyone?

Ashley Pettit - Measurement Expert of the Year (Honorable Mention)

Ashley is the “left brain” of our Communications Team, delving into the analytics behind our efforts to help us understand our results and improve our communication strategies.  There isn’t a chart, graph, or stat, that she can’t create.  And, if you’re a reporter, she’s watching your every move!  

We’re so proud of our friends and colleagues, and we’re blessed to have them in our Communications Family!  Please join us in celebrating their great accomplishments and for keeping Southwest Airlines flying high!
