ATSG Names Retired Air Force General Arthur Lichte To Board

Air Transport Services Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATSG) today announced the appointment of General Arthur J. Lichte to its Board of Directors.

General Lichte, age 63, was Commander of the Air Mobility Command (AMC) at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois when he retired on January 1, 2010, as a four-star general after 38 years of service. The AMC provides rapid global mobility and sustainment for America’s armed forces. He previously served as Assistant Vice Chief of Staff and Director, Air Force Staff, Headquarters U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C., with responsibility for Air Staff organization and administration. He was Deputy Chairman of the Air Force Council, and was the Air Force accreditation official for the Corps of Air Attachés. In addition, his experience included assignments at the Strategic Air Command, Air Mobility Command, U.S. Transportation Command, and United States Air Forces in Europe.

ATSG President and CEO Joe Hete said, “General Lichte’s leadership of AMC, along with his understanding of the many commercial air carriers and aircraft that supplement the U.S. military’s air transport operations around the world, will be invaluable as we further develop and expand our air cargo and related businesses. We look forward to his contributions to the board’s oversight and support of our efforts to maximize returns for shareholders from those businesses.”

General Lichte earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Manhattan College in New York City and a Master’s degree in systems management from the University of Southern California. He is a Graduate of the Program for Senior Officials in National Security, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass., and has completed Revolution in Business Affairs, Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, Calif. He serves on the Board of Directors, EADS-North America, a leading global aerospace and defense company, and is a member of the Board of Trustees, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
