Airborne Freight Corporation (NYSE: ABF; www.airborne.com), which operates under the trade name Airborne Express, today announced the retirement of its Chief Financial Officer. Roy Liljebeck, a 33 year veteran of Airborne’s finance division, will officially end his service to Airborne on July 7.

"The countless contributions Roy has made over the past three decades have helped solidify Airborne’s position in the marketplace," said Airborne Chairman and CEO, Bob Cline. "His involvement with and commitment to the success of Airborne is rare, and although he will be greatly missed, we wish him the very best in retirement," said Cline.
