Cathay Pacific CEO quits amid Hong Kong protests

Hong Kong flag carrier Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. announced the resignation of CEO Rupert Hogg and appointed Augustus Tang as its new head after some of the airline's staff was found to have partaken in anti-government protests.

Chief Customer and Commercial Officer Paul Loo also stepped down. He will be replaced by Hong Kong Express Airways Ltd. CEO Ronald Lam, who will hold that role until a replacement is found.

The airline recently sacked two pilots and two airport employees over their involvement in the protests, Reuters and the South China Morning Post reported.

"Recent events have called into question Cathay Pacific's commitment to flight safety and security and put our reputation and brand under pressure," the company said, adding that a new management team was needed to "reset confidence."

"These have been challenging weeks for the airline and it is right that Paul and I take responsibility as leaders of the company," Hogg said.
