Global search for successor is underway
James Hogan is to quit as chief executive officer of Etihad Airways in the second half of 2017, as the Abu Dhabi-based carrier struggles to make a profit from investments in Germany and Italy.
Under the Australian’s leadership, the Middle Eastern carrier has pursued a unique business model buying minority stakes in ailing airlines in Europe and the Asia-Pacific.
A global search for a successor to Hogan, who has run the airline for a decade, is now underway. Chief Financial Officer James Rigney will leave too, to join Hogan at an investment company, and Emirates is also looking for a new CFO.
Etihad, which has so far rejected the idea of joining a global airline alliance, stresses that it will stand by partners including Air Berlin and Alitalia in Europe and Jet Airways and Virgin Australia.
