Seychelles President appoints new Air Seychelles board

Seychelles President appoints new Air Seychelles board (Forimmediaterelease.net) The Seychelles President has appointed a new Board of Directors for Air Seychelles, with effect of March 15, 2012, in line with the strategic partnership agreement between Air Seychelles with Etihad Airways.

The new Board of Air Seychelles will be chaired by the Seychelles Minister for Home Affairs and Transport, Joel Morgan, on a temporary basis, and the Vice-chair will be the Chief Strategy and Planning Officer of Etihad Airways, Kevin Knight. The former Chairman of Air Seychelles, Maurice Loustau Lalanne, will remain as a Director of the board.

The President has said that while a ministerial appointment to the board of a government-owned company is no longer the norm in government practice in respect to principles of good governance, an exception has been made in the case of Air Seychelles.

“Given the strategic importance air access plays within the economy and, therefore, at this point in time, it is necessary to have high-level government representation on the board to ensure the safeguarding of the country’s key economic interests," said the Seychelles President.

Etihad Airways nominated a total of three members to the board, which were approved by the President of the Republic of Seychelles.

AIR SEYCHELLES BOARD:

- Joel Morgan, Chairman of Air Seychelles and Minister for Home Affairs and Transport

- Kevin Knight, Vice Chairman of Air Seychelles and Chief Strategy and Planning Officer of Etihad Airways

- Maurice Loustau Lalanne, Director of Air Seychelles and Principal Secretary for Foreign Affairs

- Steve Fanny, Director of Air Seychelles and Principal Secretary for Finance, Trade and Investment

- Jean Wheeling, Director of Air Seychelles and private sector businessman

- Duncan Naysmith, Director of Air Seychelles and Vice President, Financial Reporting of Etihad Airways

- Basaam A Al Mosa, Director of Air Seychelles and Vice President of Corporate Investments and Subsidiaries of Etihad Airways
