MAB CEO to Join Emirates?
Reports are linking the outgoing Malaysia Airlines Chief Executive Officer Christoph Mueller with Emirates Airways.
According to several sources, Mueller will join Emirates to take the position of the chief transformation officer there and lead its digitization strategy. This will put him in a slightly different scenario than what he is used to, as he won’t have any fires to put out at Emirates. Mueller has built his reputation on successful crisis management, first at Aer Lingus and then at Malaysia Airlines.
MAB CEO will leave the company after helping the carrier turn its first monthly profit in years this February. Mueller accomplished this thanks to a series of layoffs and retiring old aircraft, but a big part of the success came from the partnership with the Dubai-based airline.
Mueller has joined Malaysia Airlines in 2014, with the main task to rebuild the airline’s reputation following the plane disasters that the company suffered that year – namely the disappearance of flight MH370 (Kuala Lumpur-Beijing) and the shooting down of MH17 over Ukraine.
He will leave MAB in September due to personal reasons.
