Addis Ababa, July 18, 2022 (FBC) – Former Ethiopian Airlines chief executive Tewolde GebreMariam has been recognised at this year’s Airline Strategy Awards on 17 July.

The awards recognise individuals, airlines and companies supporting air transport that have demonstrated dynamic leadership and clear vision.

Tewolde Gebremariam received the prestigious Airline Business Award to recognise his achievements over an 11-year spell at the helm of Ethiopian Airlines, during which he showed skill across a range of disciplines, from crisis management through to long-term strategic planning.

Between Tewolde the years taking charge in 2011 and 2019, Ethiopian quadrupled in size, growing from a fleet of 33 aircraft carrying three million passengers to a fleet of 130 aircraft carrying 13 million passengers, as it became a gateway to the African continent, the Awards Coordinating Committee said.

“Tewolde Gebremariam has shown true leadership in a region where success is hard to come by at the best of times. Under his watch, Ethiopian was not just the envy of other African carriers – it had admirers from all around the world,” said Airline Business editor Lewis Harper.
