Guido Lepore the former assistant CP is the new CP, Alec has an advisory role until retirement in May next year. Guy Smith ex TC Pacific and Helijet CP is now the Global standards and Ops manager. Among the crews on my base these are all really popular appointments and hopefully a step in a new direction. All the other moves at the corporate level are desk drivers and too numerous to list.
