Javier Sánchez-Prieto returns to Iberia
Javier Sánchez-Prieto replaces Luis Gallego as executive chairman of the Iberia Group. “It’s an honour and a great satisfaction to return to Iberia, despite the hard times the airline industry is experiencing,” Sánchez-Prieto commented.
He served as Iberia’s strategic planning and finance manager during the period in which the company returned to profitability following several years of losses.
Previously, he had been a member of the founding team of the low-cost Iberia Express unit, with responsibility for strategic planning, finance, purchasing, IT systems, the aircraft fleet, human resources, and legal affairs. Previously he had worked in the maintenance, strategy, and management control departments of Air Nostrum. (mw)
