Garuda Indonesia has given the boot to the airline’s CEO Arif Wibowo at an annual general shareholders meeting held on Wednesday, April 12, 2017, near the Indonesian capital of Jakarta.
Nikkei.com reports that Wibowo’s dismissal came before the end of the Airline’s CEO five-year term of office and occurred amidst a major graft scandal and a dramatic drop in the Airline’s profitability.
Replacing Wibowo in the top role at the Airlines is Bank Mandiri’s director of finance and treasury, Pahala Mansury (shown).
Wibowo’s dismissal follows the sudden resignation of the CEO of Garuda Indonesia’s subsidiary Citilink in January when a pilot believed to be under the influence of narcotics tried to fly a jet full of passengers from Surabaya’s Juanda Airport.
Mansury has worked for Bank Mandiri since 2003. He is a graduate of New York University’s Stern School of Business and worked for a period as a business consultant with The Boston Consulting Group.
Arif assumed the CEO role at Garuda in December of 2014 when he replaced Emirsyah Satar who is now embroiled in a major corruption case involving the purchase of jet engines from Rolls Royce.
