Horizon Air Names Mark Eliasen VP of Finance

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Horizon Air announced today that Mark Eliasen will be joining the company as its vice president of finance. He brings more than 25 years of both corporate and consulting experience to the position.

Eliasen, who will be responsible for all of Horizon’s core finance-related activities, will start his new position Sept. 14 and report directly to Jeff Pinneo, president and CEO.

“We’re thrilled to be adding a person of Mark’s caliber and experience to our leadership team,” Pinneo says. “His diverse finance experience with several organizations, both as senior executive and as a consultant, have prepared him well for the challenges and opportunities of this role.”

Most recently, Eliasen practiced in the Puget Sound area as an independent corporate finance consultant in the technology, manufacturing and service industries. This required him to assess the financial health of companies and develop strategies for improving their profitability.

Before that, he served as assistant treasurer for WRQ (now Attachmate), a high-ranking connectivity software company headquartered in Seattle, and as director of finance for Everett, Wash.-based Intermec Technologies, a leading manufacturer of barcode systems.

A certified public accountant, Eliasen holds a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Washington and a bachelor’s degree from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Wash.

Horizon serves 48 cities throughout Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Baja California Sur (Mexico), and British Columbia and Alberta (Canada). Together, Horizon Air and Alaska Airlines serve more than 90 cities and are subsidiaries of Alaska Air Group, Inc. (NYSE:ALK).
