Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines wins Airline Executive of the Year organized annually by CAPA Global Aviation.

The award is presented to the airline executive who has had the greatest individual influence on the aviation industry, demonstrating outstanding strategic thinking and innovative direction for the growth of their business and the industry.

“Airline executives across the globe could learn a lot from Tewolde GebreMariam who has helped deliver sustained profitability for Ethiopian Airlines,” the awarding agency said in its press statement.

“He became group CEO in January 2011, but before that had held various several senior leadership positions in different divisions in the airline including Ethiopian Cargo, area offices and sales and marketing. In fact, he has now completed almost 35 years’ service having started as a transportation agent back in 1985,” it said.

“Under his stewardship, Ethiopian Airlines has stood out from the crowd in Africa and is now attempting to build on the continent’s potential as it expands in partnership with other African countries to build much needed intra-African connectivity,” the statement said.

The statement also noted that this year has been a tough one for all involved with the airline following the crash in March 2019 of ‘ET302’, with the loss of all 157 passengers and crew onboard, an event that subsequently lead to the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX airliner.

“Tewolde GebreMariam has become a giant in African aviation over the past decades,” said CAPA Chairman Emeritus Peter Harbison.

“He has guided a marginal airline into becoming a major global force, with a modern fleet and a world class operation. This past year he has been most strenuously challenged following the MAX accident, and emerges with an even stronger reputation. We are proud to present him with this award and look forward to him continuing to lead the airline to even greater heights.”

“I am honoured to have received the award and I sincerely thank CAPA for the recognition. We at Ethiopian have achieved greater milestones as one family,” said Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Tewolde GebreMariam.

“I want to dedicate this award to my colleagues: more than 16,000 brave men and women around the world who always challenge themselves to soar higher with the mind-set that every step they take can become new history and milestone in today’s 21st century aviation business.”

  1. Homeless people are offered cages so Addis Ababa gets beautified. These weather affecting temporary housing containers are not permanent housing where we homeless people would like to live in for long. Our goals are real heavenly condos , We want humane residences condos, these cooking frying pans containers that get too hot during the day times heat and get freezing at night times cold, are just transitional housings for us the homeless people to use as stepping stones to transition from homeless Street life to the real humane housing condos permanent housing.
    We are not going to be swept under the rug, just so we stay out of the views of the mojas diplomats by being caged in these metal boxes . We want condos nothing less.
