Snoop CEO resigns from GF

Due to yet more difficult behaviour from the Chairman of the Board (the same chairman who brought you the news that 25% of GF staff must go, when it was not true, and thus started a mass exodus leaving GF short staffed) the CEO has decided to hand in his resignation.

I think it was an ultimatum to the board. Either MK stops interfering in the running of GF or AD leaves.

Yet again GF is the loser...

André Dosé, in a statement to Gulf Air employees in response to certain reports in the Arabic media, said: “Over the weekend, there have been newspaper articles about me and the Gulf Air management in the Arabic press. I want you to know that I am aware of what has been written and that I am intentionally not responding to the various stories.

'Going forward, I will continue working for what is best for Gulf Air,” he said.

You missed the bit about .. "..I will be talking to H.E. M Khooeji later today.." (Is he really a H.E.??)

Maybe that was the 'Thanks but no thanks. Not much point if I am not being allowed to be the CEO. Why do the bored keep moving the goalposts?..Etc etc etc' talk scheduled for 'later today'.

Maybe that is what everyones talking about in the posts above leading to his (rumoured) resignation? If it's true, this is the shortest tenure in Gulf Air's history - and must surely bring about the end of what was once an airline the envy of many.

Time to bag that indemnity!

GF-A330,

What statement ?? I didn't see anything anywhere.

Although I feel it's true, we need proof guys.

Now that really made me laugh mate. More chances they take back the payrise we just had and then some, than getting any more.

GF was at one time, and also had the potential to be a great place to work. But thanks to corruption, inefficient management and office staff (enter staff travel) it has become the laughing stock of the middle east.

It's time for the government to let the professionals (ish) do their job and get GF back on track before it disappears....and it will.

Hope everyone has their CV's up to date.

Cheers

Also heard another rumour, (hey, this is a rumour network)
Bahrain and Oman could not agree about who was to be the new CEO. AD ended up being the compromise candidate that they could both agree on. Now that Oman have gone Bahrain want to bring in their first choice, however I don't know who that is
