Is CAL becoming DigiCAL?

Caribbean Airlines (CAL) is getting a slate of new executives, but the fact that some of the vacancies are being filled by former employees of the Irish-owned telecommunications company, Digicel, has raised concerns about nepotism in CAL’s hiring practices.

Sources within the company say that former Digicel executive Garvin Madera, who was recruited as CAL CEO last year, is on a hiring “spree” given that the company had initiated a hiring freeze and the jobs were advertised and filled after he assumed office. Moreso, they are concerned about the lack of aviation experience in the company’s recent recruitments. Madera who was CEO at Digicel Play with a Masters in electrical and computer engineering, had no aviation experience prior to his taking the post CAL’s chief executive.

The first day they start running it like a business and expecting people to actually work and efficiency to actually take hold is the first day the T&T government will start planning to remove them. I predicted it with the last foreigner-led "privatisation" (it didn't take very long), and that WILL happen again here.
