Western Air, the largest privately owned airline in The Bahamas, has named Sherrexcia “Rexy” Rolle as president, CEO and accountable manager of Western Air.
Rexy joins the 8% of airline CEOs that are women.
She brings 15 years of airline experience and served as VP of operations and general counsel for the past 9 years.
She has led Western Air’s transition from turboprop to a uniform fleet of nine Embraer ERJ 145- 50 seater jets and launched new routes including the airline’s first US route, between Nassau and Fort Lauderdale.
Rexy spearheaded the opening of the Western Air Freeport Passenger Terminal in 2015 and reopened the rebuilt facility, this year, after navigating the airline through the challenges of Hurricane Dorian and the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Rexy is deeply committed to the service we offer passengers. She’s hands on. For years, her role has been all encompassing, overseeing the day-to-day operations and the legal and regulatory affairs of the airline. We know she will continue to work hard to enhance and develop the Western Air experience for passengers,” said Chairman Rex Rolle.
Rexy said: “Customers matter most and we are here to serve from check-in to landing and beyond. Passengers motivate our growth and innovation. However, our core mission remains the same; to provide safe, quality, affordable, efficient air service.
We believe travel should be easy and no pressure. Hence, our tickets are usable for one year with no change or cancellation fees, ever.”
