Jet plans overhaul of its management structure


Jet Airways, which has seen a series of top-level exits after the entry of Etihad as a 24% investor in 2012, is planning an overhaul of its management structure, including the appointment of a new CEO.

A chief commercial officer and a chief operations officer will be among about a dozen senior executives to be hired, said four people aware of the matter, reports The Economic Times.

Founder Naresh Goyal is playing an instrumental role in finding new people, according to executives and analysts. This shows that he is still taking major corporate decisions although Etihad has been having a big say in deciding where Jet flies, they said. Jet has also appointed a global headhunter to look for talent.

The first of the appointments is that of Rahul Taneja, who was heading human resources at the Essar Group. He will be joining Jet as HR chief on February 15, said the people cited above. Etihad chief James Hogan was also involved in his selection.
