Avianca Airlines announced this week that as part of its new management structure, current CFO Adrian Neuhauser will assume additional responsibilities relating to the airline’s operation and the company’s legal affairs as Corporate Executive Vice President, reporting to the CEO, Anko Van Der Werff.
Under the new reporting structure, in addition to the finance department, the Company’s Chief Operating Officer and Legal Affairs departments (including Compliance) will report directly to the new Executive Vice President. Richard Galindo will assume the position of Legal Vice President and General Counsel of the airline.
All other executive vice presidents (such as those responsible for commercial affairs, customer experience, network planning, technology, and human resources) will continue to report directly to the CEO.
The airline stated that these changes in the company’s management structure arise, on the one hand, due to the need for a specialized team dedicated to customer service and to facing the challenges of restarting operations and, on the other hand, as part of the company’s organizational restructuring following the airline’s filing for Chapter 11.
