We only picked it up when we noticed a new leader being quoted when Delta Private Jets announced its partnership with Madison Square Garden. A quick check of Delta Private Jets’ website shows Jeffrey Mihalic is indeed now listed as president and CEO, but we couldn’t find any press releases about the news.
