United Airlines Chief Financial Officer Andrew Levy has resigned and is leaving the company. The carrier will "immediately" begin a search for a permanent replacement, the airline said Thursday.
The airline's treasurer, Gerry Laderman, will take the role of interim CFO, the company said. United is the third-largest U.S. airline.
Levy had been in the job for less than two years, and Laderman had served as interim CFO before Levy, a former executive at discount carrier Allegiant Air, joined United in August 2016. United also hired Scott Kirby that month from rival American Airlines to be United's new president.
