HERB KELLEHER, FOUNDER & EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN, RESIGNED (2008-05).
June 2011: The "Associated Press" reported that the legendary Herb Kelleher, the Founder of Southwest Airlines (SWA) had emerged from retirement to speak about the past, present, and the future. Herb is the man who changed the world by bringing air transport to the masses. Herb, whose pioneering business model revolutionized the entire global economy, let alone the USA airline business, still showed up at (SWA)’s head office in Dallas most days, doling out advice when solicited and keeping in touch with old industry contacts. He supported the AirTran (CQT) takeover and downplayed the impact on consumers from consolidation (it’s been happening for decades and the industry remained extremely competitive, he said). Kelleher also thought not charging for bags was an excellent “contrarian” decision, though he understood why other airlines made different choices (noting, for example, that unlike base fares, bag fees were not subject to the 7.5% federal excise tax). When asked if he’d be able to start (SWA) in present times, he essentially said no, because conditions are much different (in the early 1970s, only rich people could fly and airlines were heavily regulated). In other words, the opportunity then was greater. The next big thing in aviation: upgrades in air traffic control and engine technology. And how does Herb Kelleher want to be remembered? For the iron-clad job security he provided to workers at (SWA), which in 40 years had never furloughed a single employee!

SEE "SWA-HERB KELLEHER-2011-07-A/B."

GARY KELLY, CHAIRMAN (2008-05), & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (CEO) (2004-07).
In January 2017, Gary was stepping back from day-to-day operational management of (SWA). Gary's focus would be in external areas including political, governmental and industry affairs: investor relationships, and community affairs and outreach; and internally on employee and cultural activities.

Gary who had been (SWA)'s top executive for 12 years, said "It was important to evolve (SWA) leadership structure as part of the ongoing succession planning process."
