“From the start to the finish of Delta’s restructuring – which included building constructive relations with our pilot union and successfully fending off a hostile takeover attempt – Cynthia was my quarterback on all things communications. I fought hard to get her. It was worth it. Smart. Tough. At times unconventional. It’s who I’d want by my side when the going gets tough and the challenges are complex.”
