EasyJet Says Three Board Members To Step Down

Three members of Easyjet's board are stepping down from their roles, the British airline said on Wednesday 24 August, at a time when it faces turbulence due to strikes and airport staff shortages.


The company said Julie Southern and Andreas Bierwirth will not seek re-election to the company's board at the next annual general meeting, while Nick Leeder will step down on 30 September.


They will be replaced by Harald Eisenächer, Detlef Trefzger and Ryanne van der Eijk.

Eisenächer has held executive positions with Germany's Lufthansa LHAG.DE and travel firm Sabre Travel Network, while Trefzger and Eijk have experience in the transportation industry.

Eijk, who had worked with Netherlands-based KLM airlines for 20 years, will also become one of the board's employee representative directors.
