- Delta's new CFO Dan Janki previously worked at General Electric for nearly three decades.
- Janki becomes CFO after Delta's previous finance chief Paul Jacobson left last year.
Delta Air Lines named on Friday longtime General Electric executive Dan Janki as its new CFO. The announcement comes as the carrier seeks to stem losses after the coronavirus pandemic decimated travel demand.
Janki, 53, had joined General Electric in 1992 and was most recently a senior vice president and CEO of GE's power unit. He is set to start at Delta on July 12 and receive an annual base pay of $650,000 along with a cash signing bonus of $1.5 million, Delta said in a filing.
Delta's shares closed Friday down 0.4% at $45.21 and are up 12% so far this year.
