The next speaker in the Clayton State University College of Business’ Jim Woods Speaker Series will be Hank Halter, senior vice president and CFO for Delta Air Lines.
Halter, who is responsible for the finance and planning of Delta’s $35 billion operation, will make an experience-driven presentation on Tuesday, Nov. 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in room B-14 of the Clayton State Lecture Hall. Halter’s presentation is free and open to the public.
“He is an exciting person and gives great presentations,” says John Mascaritolo, the College of Business’ director of Supply Chain Management. “This is a great opportunity to meet and hear Mr. Halter. It is a great honor for our College of Business and Clayton State to have a high level executive of the airline industry come and spend time with us.”
Over the past several years, Halter has played an integral role in restructuring Delta’s balance sheet and cost structure. To facilitate Delta’s emergence from bankruptcy, he led the development of the emergence plan and set the company’s financial strategy.
Halter came to Delta in 1998 from American Airlines where he held various positions in corporate reporting, financial planning, and corporate real estate. Prior to his tenure with American, he was a senior accountant in the Philadelphia office of Ernst & Young LLP. A certified public accountant, he holds a B.S. in accountancy from Villanova University and an MBA from Duke University. He is a frequent speaker on financial leadership and governance at professional forums and major business schools.
