JetBlue adds General McChrystal to board of advisors

He’s no longer flying military … and he’s budget-conscious too! JetBlue announced yesterday the addition of General Stanley A. McChrystal to their corporation’s board of directors.

“We are honored to have Gen. McChrystal join our airline’s leadership ranks,” said Dave Barger, CEO and president of JetBlue. “As we enter our second decade and continue to grow in new directions, the fresh perspectives and counsel of leaders like Gen. McChrystal will be truly beneficial to maintaining our competitive advantage.”

Considered one of the nation’s most accomplished military leaders, the 34-year Army veteran commanded the U.S. and NATO’s security mission in Afghanistan, served as the director of the Joint Staff and was the Commander of Joint Special Operations Command, where he was responsible for the nation’s deployed military counter terrorism efforts.

Let’s just hope that he isn’t followed by another Rolling Stone reporter and encouraged to express his views on this airline after a few drinks.
