George Nicholas to stay on as CAL Chairman

(Trinidad Express) George Nicholas will stay as chairman of Caribbean Airlines (CAL) after Transport Minister Devant Maharaj did not accept his resignation.

A statement on Wednesday night from the Ministry of Transport said the issues that led to Nicholas’s move to vacate the chairman’s seat at the State-owned carrier were resolved.

“Minister of Transport Devant Maharaj held discussions (Wednesday) with board members and the chairman of Caribbean Airlines to resolve matters which had come to the fore over the past forty-eight hours,” the statement said.

“The board was in full support of the chairman on the issues before it, and Minister Maharaj pledged to iron out the challenges regarding what was described as overbearing bureaucracy that has, in the airline management’s view, stymied the decision-making process required for the airline’s management.”
