CEO Panel at AvNews' 14th International Airline CEO Conference Tackles Tough Topics for Latin American Aviation Industry
MIAMI, April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Spencer Stuart, the international executive search consulting firm, is honored to play an important role in the AvNews 14th Annual International Airline CEO Conference by hosting the event's CEO Dialogue. A highlight of the conference, CEO Dialogue brings together prominent airline CEOs from Latin America and the Caribbean in an engaging talk show format to explore key industry issues. Among the issues to be discussed are the ongoing emergence of low-cost carriers in the region, pan-regional airline alliances and groupings, and regulatory issues related to regional open skies. For the second year in a row, Spencer Stuart consultant Michael Bell is serving as moderator of CEO Dialogue. "The 2005 debate among our CEO panelists was very lively. Since then, the issues facing many airlines in the region only have become more challenging, so we expect some great discussion at this year's CEO Dialogue," said Bell, leader of Spencer Stuart's global Aviation, Aerospace & Defense Practice. The session is scheduled for May 1, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., at Doral Golf Resort & Spa in Miami, Florida. Confirmed participants in the CEO Dialogue include: William "Skip" Barnette, CEO, Caribbean Sun Airlines Michael Conway, CEO, Air Jamaica Peter Davies, CEO, BWIA Pedro Heilbron, CEO, Copa Airlines Frederik Jacobsen, former CEO, Tampa Cargo Roberto Kriete, CEO, Grupo TACA Emilio Romano, CEO, Mexicana "Last year, we talked about the emergence of GOL as a game-changer in the domestic Brazilian airline scene. This year, several Latin American countries -- notably Mexico -- have become hotbeds of low-cost carrier activity. In the meantime, certain legacy carriers in the region continue to struggle, while others are changing their strategies to play by the new rules of the game. Our panelists will have plenty to talk about," Bell said. The 14th Annual International Airline CEO Conference will be held April 30 to May 2, 2006, at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa in Miami, Florida. The theme of this year's conference is "The Glass is Half Full," featuring some of the positive developments underway in the Latin American aviation and tourism markets.
