Jet's acting CEO quits as exodus at the top continues

The top-level exodus at Naresh Goyal-promoted Jet Airways continued on Friday, with chief financial officer and acting CEO Ravishankar Gopalakrishnan quitting.

"Ravishankar Gopalakrishnan, chief financial officer and acting chief executive of the company, has resigned from the services with effect from today," Jet Airways said in a filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange.

The company did not give a reason for the resignation, which comes less than four months after Gopalakrishnan took over additional responsibility as CEO following the departure of Garry Toomey in mid-January.

Gopalakrishnan had served his resignation last month and was supposed to continue till May 5, sources said, adding that he chose to leave three days earlier.

He is the third top executive in the past year to part ways with the private airline, in which Gulf carrier Etihad Airways now holds a 24 per cent stake.
