Louis Georges Njifendi Kouotou is the new chairman of the board of directors of the Cameroon Airlines Company, CAMAIR-CO.
Louis Georges Njifendi Kouotou was installed April 24 by the minister of transport, Edgard Alain Mebe Ngo’o during an extra-ordinary board meeting in Yaoundé. He takes over Meffiro Oumarou, minister delegate for transport who has held the post just for seven months.
While installing the new board chair, Minister Alain Mebe Ngo’o urged the 44 year old civil administrator to ensure a serene environment for the implementation of the boeing business plan for CAMAIR-CO. The new board chair promised to live up to task given the confidence placed on him.
During the meeting the Director General of the CAMAIR-CO, Ernest Dikoum was equally saluted and encouraged to continue with ongoing reforms in the company.
The new reforms comes barely few weeks after CAMAIR-CO purchased two 787 Boeing passenger plans to boost its fleet. CAMAIR-CO has also opened up to new domestic destinations in the bid to satisfy its fast growing customers.
Many observers hold that the readjustments of the management team of the company is intended to guarantee an efficient implementation of the boeing business plan for the company that was created in 2011 by presidential decree from the defunct CAMAIR. While others believe, it is to reduce the recent tensions between Edgard Alain Mebe Ngo’o and Mefiro Oumarou. The latter had at one time received a demand for explanation why he gave out media releases without authorisation from hierarchy.
Before his appointment as new board chair of CAMAIR-CO, Louis Georges Njifenji Kouotouo was working at the service of the presidency.
