Pinnacle Names New Accounting Officer

By Bill Dries

Pinnacle Airlines Corp. has named Anthony D. McDuffie the “principal accounting officer” of the Memphis-based regional air carrier.

McDuffie replaces Ted Christie, who resigned as the company’s chief financial officer effective Friday, March 30.

McDuffie, however, will not have the title of CFO. He is considered an “at will” employee. McDuffie has been vice president of finance and controller of Pinnacle since October. Before coming to Pinnacle as part of CEO Sean Menke’s team, McDuffie had been a financial accounting consultant to businesses.
