easyJet gets new chief

EASYJET has appointed Carolyn McCall as its new Chief Executive, succeeding Andy Harrison, who is standing down on 30 June.  She joins from Guardian Media Group where she has held a number of roles over two decades, including Group Chief Executive since 2006.  She claims to be a customer of the airline.  McCall has held directorships of Tesco (March 2005 to April 2008) and Lloyds Banking Group (October 2008 to December 2009) and was appointed to the board of New Look (January 2010).  Presumably media savvy from her long years at the left leaning newspaper it will be interesting how she deals with easyJet’s fractious press relations.  In the background hovers Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder of the carrier, whose family controls 37% of the airline. www.easyJet.com
