Let Go By Board Of Directors

Air Seychelles CEO sacked

Wolfgang H. Thome, eTN  Feb 24, 2011

(eTN) - The board of directors of Air Seychelles has taken the unusual step of sacking the company’s CEO, a Mauritian citizen often in the cross hairs of the media and equally often said to be at loggerheads with key staff. No specific details have been ascertained yet, other than a replacement will most likely come from within the Seychelles, i.e., halting the trend of recruiting expatriates.

Some staff this correspondent is in more regular contact with, while generally shy to discuss the issue, have, however, expressed relief over the development and voiced their hope that the new CEO will be able to work hand in hand with staff and board and drive the airline forward.

Only recently, as reported here, was a new board appointed for the airline and the Executive Chairman Capt. David Savy been retained in his position. He, it is understood, will for the time being hold fort at Air Seychelles but be sure to read updates first here.
