New Directors Appointed To Fiji Airways Board

Two new Directors have been appointed to the Board of Air Pacific Limited Trading As Fiji Airways, following the Airline’s Annual General Meeting of Shareholders in Nadi on Friday, 12 December 2014.

The new appointees are Mr Sharvada Sharma, Solicitor-General and Mr Sundip Patel, Director of CJ Patel Group of Companies. They replaced Mr Greg Taylor and Ms Elizabeth Powell, whose tenure on the Board has ended with effect from 13 December 2014.

Current Board members who have been retained include Chairman Mr Nalin Patel, Managing Director and CEO, Mr Stefan Pichler, and Mr Aslam Khan.

Fiji Airways’ Chairman, Nalin Patel, on behalf of the Board, welcomed Mr Sharma and Mr Patel and looks forward to their contributions. “I also take this opportunity to thank Mr Taylor and Ms Powell for their contributions over the years they have served as board members,” he said.

Mr. Patel also stated: “We are always mindful of the need for the airline to be sustainably profitable. The Board has approved the 2015 Budget and a number of other exciting initiatives which will be announced soon. We look forward to announcing the 2014 financial results following the completion of annual audits.”

“Great progress has been made at Fiji Airways and the company is definitely on track for a successful future. More aircraft, more flights, new destinations, an upgraded product and more jobs are on our agenda. Fiji Airways will continue to deliver outstanding value to its customers, its dedicated staff members and its shareholders. The year ahead offers many challenges but given the resolve and commitment of our people, I am confident that Fiji Airways will rise to the challenges.”

Mr Patel confirmed that the search for a new Managing Director and CEO to replace Mr Stefan Pichler is in progress. Mr Pichler will remain on the Board following his return to Germany at the end of January 2015.
