Marco Perez - President
[email protected]

Took Office: January 1st, 2023
Term Expires: December 31, 2025

Marco Perez grew up in Spain and moved to New York City at the age of 19 with just a few dollars and a dream.  Marco studied World Ancient History and worked in a Manhattan restaurant for a year, perhaps being the worst waiter ever.  Shortly after, Marco worked for Marriott Hotel International and Sheraton's Starwood Hotels in various roles, ultimately becoming a hotel manager for two large Sheraton Hotels in Manhattan.  Major roles included being in charge of multi million accounting for both properties as well as customer service for a 1000+ room complex.

Having managed dozens of employees in his hotel management years, Marco had a very good understanding about how hard it would be taking on a role as important as LEC President for New York.

Marco has always been a New York Flight Attendant since joining Pinnacle Airlines in 2010 and he has been based in both JFK & LGA.

Marco currently splits his time between USA and Spain. Flying with old friends and meeting new Flight Attendants on the line motivates him to continue to fight for better working conditions.
