Denver (June 12, 2000) - Frontier Airlines (Nasdaq: FRNT ) has named Kevin Stocker as director of human resources effective immediately. Stocker's primary responsibilities will include developing and implementing programs in the areas of recruitment, staffing, affirmative action, Equal Employment Opportunities (EEO), disability management, retention initiatives, employee/labor relations and other client services. In his expanded role, Stocker, 47, will continue reporting to Vice President of Human Resources Ann Block.
"As Frontier's employee base continues to grow in both size and scope, the responsibility of supporting our most important asset, our people, increases," said Block. "Kevin brings a broad understanding of human resources to his expanded role, and we look forward to his continued leadership in the area of human resources."
Stocker brings over 16 years of human resources experience to his new position and most recently served as manager of staffing and employee relations for the airline. Prior to that time, Stocker worked with Public Service Company of Colorado and BlueCross/BlueShield of Colorado, where he was responsible for all human resource functions. He holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from Colorado State University and a master's degree in human resources from the University of Phoenix, Colorado Division. Stocker's background includes extensive work in employee development (managerial assessment, leadership development, training), staffing and disability management. Stocker currently lives in Arvada, CO, with his wife, Linda, and their two children.
Denver-based Frontier Airlines serves 21 cities coast to coast with a fleet of 23 Boeing 737 jets and employs approximately 2,100 aviation professionals. Unlike other airlines, Frontier's low fares do not have a Saturday night stay requirement. In addition, Frontier offers frequent flyer miles in Continental Airlines' OnePass program. In 1999, Frontier was named "Best Low-Fare Carrier" by Entrepreneur Magazine in the publication's sixth annual Business Travel Awards. Also in 1999, the airline received the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) prestigious Aviation Maintenance Technician Employers Diamond Certificate of Excellence Award, which provides special recognition to airlines that have 100 percent of eligible employees complete an advanced training aircraft maintenance training program.
