| No Comments

Glenn Tilton, chairman of United Continental Holdings and former CEO of United Airlines, has been honored with the American Cancer Society's inaugural CEO of the Year Award. Part of the ACS's Corporate Impact Award series, the CEO of the Year Award honors a corporate executive officer's excellence in leadership, personal commitment of time and impact in the fight against cancer in the workplace.

Under Tilton's leadership, United Airlines made cancer-related programs the cornerstone of its volunteer efforts. Through a multi-year, cause-related "Hugyou Teddy Bear Family" program, United and its customers have generated more than 148 million airline miles and nearly half a million dollars in cash contributions for cancer patients and their families who need to travel for treatment.
