Garuda Indonesia CEO ready to step down soon
Publication Date : 09-08-2014
At the end of his tenure, flag carrier Garuda Indonesia president director Emirsyah Satar says that he is ready to be replaced by anyone.
Emirsyah said he had asked the State-Owned Enterprises Ministry to prepare a new person to be installed as Garuda CEO by the end of this year.
"I have met with the company's major shareholders [the government] saying that my tenure is going to end soon. I want my successor to be someone who understands the problems in Garuda," he told reporters at the airline headquarters at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Cengkareng, Banten, on Friday as quoted by kontan.co.id.
Previously, State-Owned Enterprises Minister Dahlan Iskan said he would replace Emirsyah in September.
Emirsyah declined to comment when reporters asked him about who he thought would be the best person for the position.
"It would be better if my successor was someone who works in Garuda so that he or she will understand the problems in the airline and knows how to resolve them. But, the decision is in the hands of the shareholders," he continued.
