Executive of the Year

John Hunter

Delta Air Lines

Vice President – Fuel Management

John joined Delta Air Lines in April 2013, overseeing all commercial
activity, logistics and government compliance for the wholly-owned refining
subsidiary Monroe Energy LLC. John has helped grow the refinery to a net
profitable position since inception and has fully integrated the Refinery
into Delta’s wellhead to wingtip jet fuel strategy. He has built a team of
over twenty experienced individuals that have improved crude cost by over
$500M, while improving the net sales value of clean products and other
streams by over $50M. In parallel, John has overseen business development,
process and organizational improvement, credit management, strategic
planning, and budgeting. All of this builds on his earlier role with Delta
as Managing Director of Fuel. Here he improved the company’s refinery
feedstock supply, clean products, and marketing for both LPG and Resid
fuels, which included a reduction in costs with a proactive management
approach to self-supply jet fuel in key markets.

In addition to oversight of Monroe Energy’s commercial and optimization
activities, John leads the efforts to grow and improve Delta’s jet fuel self-
supply chain resulting in annual savings of $75 million dollars per year.
The strategy has included self-supply over 60 airports from zero when
John arrived.

Prior to joining Delta, John was Director of Fuel, Trading and Risk
Management for Murphy Oil USA. While earning over $25 million in
EBITDA in 2012 alone, John improved transparency within the business,
procured over 150,000 barrels of gasoline and diesel per day, improved
risk management, and inventory strategies, and undertook all logistical
movements for Colonial, Plantation, EPPCO, Explorer, and Magellan
pipelines.

Before taking on these roles, he was Manager for Crude Oil Trading in the
North and then held the same position in the South. Both roles were also
with Murphy Oil USA.

John graduated from Louisiana Tech University with a BS in Accounting
with an MA in Professional Accounting with the same university. John is a
Certified Public Accountant with the State of Arkansas.
John and Shasta, his wife of 20 years, have six children aged from 23 to 8
years old. John enjoys playing basketball, reading and spending time with
family. John is a volunteer coach for a local youth football and basketball
team and likes to volunteer his time at different charities including Habitat
for Humanity and Samaritan’s Purse.
