The leaders of the attempt to reincarnate the People Express brand as a new low-cost carrier based in Newport News, Va., say they have a CEO, but cannot identify him. The clue comes from People Express COO Michael Morisi, who dailypress.com reports as saying that the CEO was previously the president/CEO of another airline and remains constrained by a non-compete contract clause until mid-March.Who could that be? Well, I am assuming it is someone from a U.S. carrier, so that a non-compete clause would prevent him from going to a domestic U.S. carrier. And there are not that many people who have left a president/CEO position--especially with a non-compete clause that would expire in that time frame.So I am guessing--in the style of the board game Clue--that the answer is Phil Trenary in Memphis with the consultancy. Trenary resigned as president and CEO of Pinnacle Airlines on March 24, 2011. The Memphis Daily News subsequently reported that Trenary departed with "a two-year consulting fee with Pinnacle of $1.7 million that includes a one-year no compete clause."Trenary currently shows up on LinkedIn as "president and CEO of Phil Trenary & Associates." I'm guessing that will change soon. But, of course, it is still just a guess.
