"Mike's extensive industry knowledge and experience will compliment the efforts of Delta's 1,800 employees and our alliance partners as we strive to build the premier global network in the Pacific Northwest," said Delta CEO Richard Anderson. "His values and understanding of Delta's unique culture make him an excellent ambassador in the Seattle market as we continue to grow our roots in the community."

Medeiros most recently served as vice president–Global Human Resources and Talent Development, where he dedicated much of his attention to employee relations, with a heavy focus on maintaining the special relationship Delta has with its employees. He led a team of professionals deployed across the globe who provide leadership, coaching and support to both Delta leadership and frontline employees.

During his career at Delta, Mike has also been a key leader in operations, including his previous assignment where he was responsible for Delta's New York operation, while based at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Under his leadership, Delta's JFK hub saw significant operational improvements in the areas of safety, on-time, customer service and baggage performance, built on a culture of continuous improvement.

Medeiros joined Delta as an Airport Customer Service agent in Raleigh-Durham, N.C., just prior to graduating from North Carolina State University where he earned a BA degree in Political Science. He later graduated from Auburn University with a Masters in Business Administration. 

Since May, Delta service in Seattle has expanded from 33 peak-day departures to 13 destinations to its current schedule of 44 peak-day departures to 18 destinations.
