“The entire Air Jamaica team thanks Bruce for being an excellent leader, who remained steadfast in dynamic times,” Mr. Lalor added.
Caribbean Airlines CEO, Captain Ian Brunton, added that Mr. Nobles’ “agile mind, entrepreneurial spirit and his credentials in global aviation” contributed to his invaluable leadership through, what has been, one of the most challenging periods of the airline’s history.
Mr. Hall has served two tenures at Air Jamaica. He served as Chief Financial Officer 2000-2004 and as Vice President Finance and IT since October 2008.
He has considerable expertise in financial planning and general management and has been pivotal in transforming Air Jamaica. He will continue to function in his current role as head of Finance and IT.
