CALGARY — After 16 years as a WestJetter, Tim Croyle, Vice-President of WestJet Vacations and Cargo, has announced his retirement.
The decision, said Croyle, was made with “careful consideration and mixed emotions”. He went on to thank WestJet’s travel trade, hotel and destination partners for their support over the years.
“I look forward to watching the great things that WestJet’s global aspirations will bring to Canada and the world,” he added.
Croyle first joined the airline in 2003 as Manager-Airports Projects, then held a variety of roles before moving to WestJet Vacations in 2010. There, he’s credited with building a solid foundation for the business and was subsequently promoted to Vice-President, WestJet Vacations.
In March 2018, Croyle stepped into the role of Interim Executive Vice-President, Commercial, leading the launch of WestJet’s 787 Dreamliner. Most recently, he assumed responsibility of WestJet’s Cargo team and its in-house transition.
His final day has been set for Oct. 31.
WestJet will begin the process of conducting a search for Vice-President, WestJet Vacations shortly. With Croyle’s retirement, WestJet Cargo will be moved under Charles Duncan, Executive Vice-President and Chief Strategy Office.
