Air France-KLM chiefs to leave company

CEOs want to spend more time with grandchildren

It has been announced that KLM CEO Peter Hartman will retire in July this year and longstanding Air France-KLM chief Jean-Cyril Spinetta is planning to leave by April 2014. Spinetta said at a briefing of the company’s disappointing results on Friday: “The supervisory board of KLM has decided to accept the retirement of CEO Peter Hartman and to ask Camiel Eurlings to take over from July 1 this year. […] KLM remains in very capable hands.”
A former Dutch transport minister and MEP, Eurlings is currently managing director of KLM and executive vice president of Air France-KLM Cargo. Hartman will remain on the supervisory board of Air France-KLM, he told ATW, adding that he wanted to spend more time with his grandchildren.
Spinetta told ATW: “I also have a lot of grandchildren”, adding that “the very last moment” for his own exit would be April 2014.
