LIAT to meet on CEO’s quitting
LIAT’S BOARD of directors will meet tomorrow to decide whether it will accept the resignation of chief executive officer Captain Ian Brunton.
Weeks after having to apologize to Caribbean travellers for a summer of flight delays and cancellations, Brunton has indicated that he is ready to go.
Efforts to reach Brunton and LIAT chairman Jean Holder were unsuccessful but confirmation that the CEO had expressed his desire to walk away from the airline after just over a year in the position came from corporate communications manager Desmond Brown.
But even before the board meets to discuss the matter, the leader of at least one shareholder government has said that as much as Brunton is valued at the Antigua-based airline, the carrier would move on if it needed to.
