Air New Zealand CEO to step down

Rob Fyfe

AIR New Zealand (ANZ) CEO, Rob Fyfe, will be stepping down from his role on December 31, 2012.

Fyfe’s decision to leave the New Zealand flag carrier by end-2012 coincides with the conclusion of his term as Star Alliance chairman, and will also see him complete four years as an IATA board member.

ANZ chairman John Palmer said: “There is no fixed time for when the decision will be made on the appointment of Air New Zealand’s next CEO, but a normal period would be roughly six months.”

“We would expect significant international interest in the role and believe there are some very strong candidates from within Air New Zealand’s existing executive management team.”
