Eti­had con­firms man­age­ment changes

Business Traveller (Middle East) - - Upfront -

THE ETI­HAD AVI­A­TION GROUP Board of Di­rec­tors has con­firmed James Ho­gan will step down as Pres­i­dent and CEO in the sec­ond half of 2017. Ho­gan will join an in­vest­ment com­pany along with Group CFO James Rigney, who will also leave the com­pany later this year. In a state­ment, Eti­had said a global search for a new Group CEO and a new Group CFO is al­ready un­der­way. Eti­had praised Ho­gan’s role in trans­form­ing the com­pany from a 22-plane re­gional car­rier into a 120-air­craft global air­line and group. But the eco­nomic strat­egy of in­vest­ing in Euro­pean air­lines (AirBer­lin and Al­i­talia) has proved more chal­leng­ing, and rev­enues have dipped as a re­sult of the eco­nomic slow­down.
