Hawaiian Airlines parent company Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. has announced the resignation of one of its Board of Directors members.

On Tuesday, it was reported that Zac Hirzel would resign from the Board effective immediately. He has been a member since February 2014.

“Zac is a valued colleague and a staunch believer in Hawaiian Airlines’ singular brand and potential for continued growth,” said Lawrence Hershfield, chairman of the board of Hawaiian Holdings, Inc. “We have appreciated his insights and are grateful for his service to the board.”

Hirzel is the president and founder of the investment firm Hirzel Capital Management in Dallas, Tex.

“It has been my privilege to be a board member and shareholder at Hawaiian during the past few years,” said Hirzel. “I want to thank both Larry and Mark Dunkerley for their strong leadership and to everyone at Hawaiian for their dedication to the company.”


In May, several current board members are up for re-election, including Lawrence S. Hershfield, chairman; Mark B. Dunkerley, president and chief executive officer; Randall L. Jenson; Crystal K. Rose; and Richard N. Zwen.


Union representatives Duane E. Woerth, Air Line Pilots Association; William S. Swelbar, Association of Flight Attendants; and effective in May, Joseph Guerrieri, Jr. of the International Association of Machinists, are also among the Board of Directors.
