"We're delighted that Eric is joining Air Group's board. Along with his deep financial expertise, he'll bring a distinct perspective from Hawaii, a region that represents one-fifth of Alaska Airlines' network," Ayer said. "In addition to his impressive career, Eric has an equally impressive community service record that fits well with the Alaska Spirit."

Yeaman, who becomes Air Group's 11 th board member, joined Hawaiian Telcom in 2008. He successfully reorganized the company, returning it to profitability and reducing its debt by more than $800 million.

He also served as chief operating and financial officer for Kamehameha Schools and was a partner at Arthur Andersen LLP.

" Hawaii is known for its vibrant culture, history and aloha spirit," said Yeaman, who was born and raised in Kona, Hawaii. "I'm looking forward to serving a company that also comes from such a rich background and contributes significantly to our state's economy and community."
