Etihad Airways top executives to quit amid strategy review


The longtime chief executive of Abu Dhabi's Etihad Aviation Group, which owns one of the Middle East's top airlines, will leave this year as the group reviews its strategy in a challenging market, Etihad said on Tuesday.

James Hogan will step down as president and CEO of the group in the second half of 2017 after leading the fast-growing Gulf carrier for more than 10 years.

Chief financial officer James Rigney will also leave later this year, Etihad said.

Chairman Mohamed Mubarak Fadhel al-Mazrouei said the airline, which has seven equity partnerships with other carriers around the world including Air Berlin and Alitalia, would "progress and adjust" those links.

The government-owned carrier said the move is part of a "transition process" initiated by its board and Hogan last year.
