Virgin Islander and Delta Air Lines veteran of 21 years, Warren Wells Jr., joined an elite class of 100 colleagues hailing from stations across the United States and four countries, according to a release issued Thursday. This group was inducted into the company’s prestigious Chairman’s Club on November 14, 2019 at the Delta Flight Museum in Atlanta, Georgia.
Mr. Wells, who currently serves as a station manager, was inducted and rewarded with fellow inductees for their “service, dedication and all-around embodiment of ‘the spirit of Delta.’” Undergoing a rigorous and extensive review process, the group was selected from more than 5,000 nominations in 26 stations around the world. They were celebrated in grand style at the 23rd annual Chairman’s Club Gala in Atlanta, Georgia. Each inductee was honored with a 10-carat gold Chairman’s Club lapel pin, two confirmed tickets anywhere in the world Delta flies, and Tumi luggage.
