Newly appointed chief executive officer of Caribbean Airlines (CAL), Garvin Madera, is looking forward to leading the transformation that the airline must embrace if it is to meet the challenges of the fiercely competitive airline industry.

Madera took up his position as company CEO on Monday.

Madera is formerly the CEO of Digicel Play, a position he held from December 2015 until his earlier this month.

Prior to his role as CEO of Digicel Play, Madera served in several key leadership positions at Digicel including Chief Operating Officer, General Manager -Tobago and Chief Technical Officer, managing the company’s full operational portfolio.

Medera holds an MBA from the University of Oxford, an LLB from the University of London and M.Sc. and B.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of the West Indies.

The CAL Board of Directors, in a release yesterday, expressed their sincere gratitude to the former acting CEO Captain Jagmohan Singh and the Executive Management Team, “who ensured that Caribbean Airlines continued to deliver an enhanced travel experience to its valued customers, while the search for a Chief Executive Officer was taking place.”

“The Board and employees look forward to the innovation and collective capabilities that would be developed under the leadership of the new CEO,” the release stated.
