Breeze Airways, a Cottonwood Heights, Utah-based company, announces two appointments to lead their "Seriously Nice" executive team and company.
Tom Doxey will join in the new role of President, while Natalie Atwood has been named Chief People Officer.
“We’re so happy to welcome Tom and Natalie to the family,” said Breeze CEO David Neeleman, in a press release. “They are joining the airline at a pivotal time in our young company’s history as we approach our one-year anniversary, welcome the Airbus A220-300 to our fleet, and continue our rapid expansion across the US, including transcontinental flights. They will both be integral to take us from 30 destinations today to a much broader route network and a bigger family in the years ahead.”

“It’s such an exciting time to be joining Breeze, the country’s youngest airline, from one of the oldest and most established carriers,” said Doxey. “I can’t wait to get out into our operation and meet our Team Members. The airline has achieved so much in a short time and I am humbled and thrilled to be part of it.”
Doxey will report to David Neeleman, Breeze's founder and Chief Executive Officer, on June 8.
