Etihad hires interim chief executive

Etihad has appointed the company’s chief people and performance officer Ray Gammell as interim chief executive. James Hogan is stepping down in the second half of the year after he and his chief financial officer colleague James Rigney announced they would be joining an investment company.

Gammell, who has been with the airline since 2009, will assume control of the company in an interim capacity while the board concludes its search for a permanent CEO.

Ricky Thirion, who has been with the company since 2007 and currently holds the position of group treasurer, is replacing Mr Rigney in the finance department.
