The Shareholders and the Board of Administrators would like to express the highest gratitude for all the efforts and dedication Mr. Gheorghe Racaru contributed from the moment of incorporation of the airline in 2004 until today when Blue Air became one of the biggest players in Romania and a relevant carrier at European level. Leaving the executive assignments, Mr. Racaru will further concentrate on the long-term strategy of the airline helping further to Blue Air’s development and keeping available all his management, leadership, wisdom and business acumen skills and experience. As of now, I would like you all to join me in warmly welcoming Mr. Marius Puiu in his new role of Chief Executive Officer of Blue Air, and I trust his large relevant experience, his human personal approach for people together with the enhanced leadership skills will further successfully steer our organization in the years to come”.
