Croatia Airlines gets new CEO
Srećko Šimunović, Croatia Airlines CEOYesterday, the management board of Croatia’s national carrier accepted the resignation of Ivan Mišetić and named Srećko Šimunović as the airline’s new CEO. Šimunović came to Croatia Airlines in 2002, taking up the post as head of the marketing department. He later became the director of the marketing and networks department and finally moved to the marketing and purchasing department. Before arriving at Croatia Airlines, Šimunović worked for INA, the Croatian National Petroleum Industry. Šimunović has a tough job ahead of him with mounting competition from foreign carriers, unhappy work unions and dire balance sheets. Šimunović takes on a 5 year term as the airline’s CEO.
