LIAT accepts resignation of CEO
ST JOHN’S – It’s official.
David Evans is no longer Chief Executive Officer of regional airline LIAT.
In a short statement, LIAT says the Board of Directors accepted Evans’ resignation today.
Julie Reifer-Jones, Director Finance and ICT, has been appointed to act as Chief Executive Officer.
The Board of Directors thanked Evans for his service and wished him success in his future endeavours.
Reports coming out of Antigua and Barbuda indicated Evans had tendered his resignation after a “stormy board of directors meeting” in Barbados last Thursday.
Prime Minister Gaston Browne said at the time the resignation had not been accepted, but hoped the differences would be reconciled after a meeting today.
Evans joined LIAT in 2014, taking over from Reifer-Jones, who had been Acting CEO since the resignation of Captain Ian Brunton in September 2013.
The airline is owned by the governments of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica and St Vincent and the Grenadines. (PR/CMC)
