Bagley to retire.
"Since joining us in 1983, George has been instrumental in putting both Horizon and Alaska on solid operational footing and reinforcing the high standards of safety and customer service that we are known for," said Bill Ayer, chairman and chief executive officer of Alaska Air Group.
Bagley joined Horizon after serving as president of Transwestern Airlines, a Logan, Utah-based regional carrier acquired by Horizon in 1983. He later became vice president of flight operations at Horizon and then Alaska, returning to Horizon as president and CEO in 1995. Bagley assumed leadership of Alaska's flight operations, maintenance and ground operations in 2002.
Ayer noted a number of factors contributing to Bagley's decision to retire, including just having his 60th birthday, and his desire to spend more time with his family and pursue his interests.
