Barbara Munroe, WestJet Airlines Ltd.
Barbara Munroe was recently promoted to WestJet’s executive
team as Executive Vice President, Corporate Services and
General Counsel. Since joining WestJet in 2011, Barbara
has been essential to its tremendous expansion, including:
introduction of regional carrier WestJet Encore; the purchase
of 65 new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft; a wide-body fleet
introduction with the purchase of four Boeing 767s; and an
increase in scheduled routes to over 100 destinations in over
20 countries. Through all this change, the culture of WestJet
has remained the same, due in part to Barbara’s leadership.
She regularly speaks to WestJetters at town-halls, is an active
member of WestJet’s cycling team, and as a breast cancer
survivor, and she proudly participates in WestJet’s support of
the annual CIBC Run for the Cure. Barbara was appointed to
the board of Crescent Point Energy in 2016.Back to list of Winners for 2017
