  1. Question? Since Mrs. Andrea James was acting in the position for such a long time, why wasn’t she confirmed in the position? Didn’t she has the requisite qualification? Sometimes it is very demoting to be overlooked by a company in which you worked for years and give your best. And at the end of the day if you do not see any upward mobility you look for somewhere else to go. Taking all the knowledge that you have into another job. The new CFO doesn’t seem to have experience in the airline industry. Which is a special set of qualification apart from having an accounting qualification. I would have picked someone with a Finance background rather than someone with an Accounting Background. The Staff in the accounts department can do the Accounting work. LIAT needs someone to do the Financial Planning. The company is Cash Strapped.
