The Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of LIAT Lloyd Carswell has resigned. His resignation took effect last week.

He was hired in 2014 on a temporary basis of three to four months but served nearly four years in the position.

A source familiar with Carswell’s resignation told Antigua News Room (ANR) that “a combination of factors” led to his decision.

The source said CCO was dissatisfied with a number of developments within the company and the attitude of the Chief Executive Officer Julie Reifer-Jones towards taking his advice.

High level resignations are not new to LIAT which has changes four CEO’s in as many years.

But the Carswell’s resignation comes at a time when LIAT is struggling to grow its financial fortunes.

It has also been faced with increasing costs with a recently approved salary package for pilots, severance payments to several employees, coupled with the usually high cost of maintaining its fleet of 10 ATR aircraft.

LIAT has not said who will replace Carswell.
