Holder still at LIAT helm
MORE than seven months after resigning as LIAT chairman but promising to stay on until his replacement could be found, Dr Jean Holder is still leading the airline’s Board.
He is among the LIAT contingent which is meeting with leaders of the shareholder governments and union representatives at the Barbados Hilton to discuss future plans for the carrier.
Asked by NATIONNews whether it was an indication that he was committed to staying with LIAT, Holder responded: “I’m just taking it one day at a time.”
Last June, he tendered his resignation from the eight-member Board of the Antigua-based carrier but committed to staying on until the Government of Barbados, which appointed him as a director, chose another director and a new chairman was selected.
Holder is among four of the directors appointed by the Barbados Government – the largest of LIAT’s shareholder governments. The other four are split among Antigua, which has two, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines and St. Lucia which have one each. (DP)
