Our Chief of Staff to CEO Oscar Munoz Julie Stewart was recently included in Institutional Investor's magazine 2018 All-American Executive Team edition. Julie ranked first as Best Overall Investor Relations Professional in the airline category, for her work in her previous role as managing director of investor relations. Of the 10 airline companies nominated, Julie was recognized as best Investor Relations professional by the annual rankings. Julie joined United in January 2017 after 9 years at Credit Suisse as an equity research analyst. The last two years, she has been highly recognized as an airline industry analyst.

Additionally, the entire Investor Relations team took second-place honors as the best Investor Relations program, behind Delta Air Lines and ahead of American Airlines.

"I want to congratulate Julie and the entire Investor Relations team on receiving such well-deserved recognition," said EVP and Chief Financial Officer Andrew Levy. "This award is a testament to their hard work and dedication to building and maintaining open and honest relationships with the shareholder community. I'm proud of the work they have done and this award signifies their deep commitment to excellence and a passion for staying a step ahead."

Best Investor Relations rankings are based on votes from buy-side and sell-side analysts. In total, 3,046 portfolio managers and buy-side analysts, and 1,002 sell-side analysts voted across 44 sectors.
