(NASDAQ: PNCL) announced today that it has initiated a search for a successor to Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Ted Christie, who will leave the company on March 30, 2012.

The search for Christie's successor will begin immediately under the supervision of Sean Menke, president and chief executive officer of Pinnacle Airlines Corp., and the company's board of directors.

"We appreciate Ted's contributions at Pinnacle," said Menke. "He has played a key role in developing our ongoing turnaround plan and I appreciate his willingness to remain in place through the end of the month in order to continue supporting those activities and facilitate a smooth transition. We respect his decision and wish Ted good luck and continued success."

"This was a difficult decision, particularly in the midst of the critical restructuring activities taking place at Pinnacle," Christie said. "Ultimately this new role is a great opportunity for me. I've enjoyed working with the great team at Pinnacle since arriving in July 2011, and I am confident that the important work now underway will continue to move forward following my departure."
