The Etihad Aviation Group Board of Directors under the Chairmanship of HE Mohamed Mubarak Al Mazrouei has announced the new management structure for the Etihad Aviation Group.
Etihad Aviation Group Chairman, Mr Al Mazrouei said: “Etihad Airways has been steadily evolving into the Etihad Aviation Group for a number of years.
“This has been driven by the formation of new companies, including Etihad Airways Engineering, Etihad Global Cargo Management Company, the Global Loyalty Company, Hala Abu Dhabi, and Etihad Airport Services.
“The acquisition of minority equity stakes in Alitalia, airberlin, Air Serbia, Air Seychelles, Etihad Regional operated by Darwin Airline, Jet Airways, and Virgin Australia, has also necessitated the need for a dedicated team to manage our shareholding, and the delivery of wide-ranging synergies that are beneficial to all parties.”
As a result, former Etihad Airways president and chief executive James Hogan has been appointed Etihad Aviation Group president and chief executive.
James Rigney has become group chief financial officer, Kevin Knight is group chief strategy and planning officer, Ray Gammell has been appointed group chief people and performance officer and Robert Webb is now group chief information and technology officer.
Hogan said: “The new management structure will enable us to maximise opportunities for growth, revenue generation and cost control on a much bigger scale so that the Etihad Aviation Group continues to deliver to its fullest potential and for the benefit of its guests, employees and suppliers.”
