WestJet has announced that Tim Croyle, Vice-President, WestJet Vacations and Cargo has decided to retire, effective 31OCT.   

"The decision has been made with careful consideration and with mixed emotions," said Croyle.

"I would like to thank all of WestJet's travel trade, hotel and destination partners for the support and loyalty they have shown for more than a decade. I look forward to watching the great things that WestJet's global aspirations will bring to Canada and the world."

Tim joined WestJet in 2003, as Manager-Airports Projects, and held a variety of roles before moving to WestJet Vacations in 2010 where he built a solid foundation for the business and was subsequently promoted to Vice-President, WestJet Vacations.

In March of 2018, Tim stepped in to the Interim Executive Vice-President, Commercial role, leading the launch of WestJet's 787 Dreamliner. Most recently, he assumed responsibility of the WestJet Cargo team.

WestJet says it will begin the process of conducting a search for Vice-President, WestJet Vacations shortly. With Croyle's retirement, Charles Duncan, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer, will take responsibility for WestJet Cargo.
