Rather a lot has been happening at Norwegian currently, as the corporate shifts their focus from development to profitability.
Simply a few weeks in the past the corporate introduced their choose for brand new CEO, who comes from outdoors the business. He’s changing Norwegian’s founder, who introduced over the summer season he’d be stepping down from the function of CEO.
Norwegian has simply introduced one other fascinating govt choose.
Norwegian Appoints New Interim CCO
Norwegian has in the present day introduced that Marty St. George has been appointed interim Chief Industrial Officer (CCO).
This comes as Norwegian’s earlier CCO, Helga Bollmann Leknes, has determined to go away the corporate after two years. The corporate notes that she was supplied one other place within the group’s administration crew, however determined to pursue different alternatives.
Why Marty St. George Is A Nice Choose
On what planet is an interim CCO choose for a struggling airline value writing about? Effectively, George has been within the airline business for greater than 30 years, and till not too long ago was the CCO of JetBlue.
He stepped down from the place over the summer season. 13 years is a very long time to spend at an organization, so many puzzled if he had one other alternative elsewhere, or what was happening within the JetBlue C-suite.
I discover it a bit shocking that he’s solely being appointed interim CCO. He’s extremely certified and an excellent asset, so is he not enthusiastic about staying long run, or…?
The opposite fascinating wrinkle right here is that JetBlue and Norwegian not too long ago introduced a partnership. With George having left JetBlue over the summer season, I can’t assist however surprise in regards to the dynamics of all of this.
George is a really effectively regarded airline govt, and a very good choose. I nonetheless am curious to see what the long run plan right here is, on condition that he was simply appointed interim CCO, and in addition on condition that he left JetBlue only a few months in the past, and now JetBlue and Norwegian are partnering.
What do you make of George being appointed Norwegian’s interim CCO?
