The CEO of the regional carrier – LIAT – has resigned just shy of two years on the job.
A well-placed source has confirmed that David Evans called it quits after “a heated meeting with the board of directors last Thursday”.
The source did not disclose the agenda item from the fateful meeting.
The reasons for the head of the carrier’s departure are unknown at this point.
Word of his exit comes just over a year after Prime Minister Gaston Browne called for his resignation.
Browne was adamant at that time that the CEO, who had been on the job for about a year, should tender his resignation after a plan emerged to collapse LIAT and form a new airline solely owned by Barbados.
LIAT’s head of corporate communications Desmond Brown, told OBSERVER media that LIAT will issue a statement in due course.
When contacted on this development, board member Senator Lennox Weston said, ”I am off island,” and directed the newspaper to Aviation Minister Robin Yearwood who could not be reached for comment.
Weston added, ”I am not aware that the board has made any decision re Evans.
