A new organisational structure and operating model, effective immediately, has been announced by the Etihad Aviation Group in a move the company says is designed to “deliver on its mandate” for next phase of its transformation.
The group is being reorganised into seven business divisions led by a new executive leadership team reporting to group chief executive officer Tony Douglas, who also assumes responsibility for Etihad Airways.
Former Etihad chief executive since 2016 Peter Baumgartner will become senior strategic adviser to Douglas as part of the leadership team, advising at group level on global partnerships and innovation.
The new business divisions cover operations, commercial, maintenance, repair and overhaul, human resources, finance, support services and transformation.
Group chairman Mohamed Mubarak Fadhel Al Mazrouei said: “As we approach our 15-year anniversary, this reorganisation and restructure will help us to lay the foundations for Etihad to optimise its value as a world-leading group.”
He added the move also cleared the way for the company to streamline operations and capitalise on opportunities, allowing the business to focus on improving its core operating performance.
“We recorded an improvement in our operating results for 2017 and are confident that we are back on track this year, strengthening our position group-wide after a period of consolidation.”
