Another LIAT CEO has resigned, according to reprots.
David Evans_LIATAntigua Chronicle understands that David Evans, who has held the office for just about two years, has tendered his resignation following what has been described as a “heated” discussion with the airline’s board of directors. This meeting took place last Thursday.
No official statement on the matter has yet been received from the LIAT Corporate Communications department.
Evans came under fire from Antigua Prime Minister Hon. Gaston Browne less than one year ago following reports of an alleged plot to remove the airline from its regional joint ownership standings and leave it solely in the hands of Barbados, which shares the majority ownership and hub bases with Antigua.
