Uganda Airlines Given to Foreigners
The Ministry of Works and Transport has selected Profiles International to undertake the search process for the chief executive officer of the Uganda Airlines.
Cornwell Muleya a Zambian National is currently Uganda Airlines acting CEO.
Ministry of Works and Transport that last year called for bids of competent firms to undertake the search process, has chosen Profiles International, subject to vetting by the Solicitor General before it can sign the contract.
Profiles International Uganda Limited (PIUL) is an affiliate of Profiles International Inc. (PII), a Waco, Texas, USA-based firm that provides solutions to a wide range of Human Resource challenges.
The firm beat three others in a process that the procurement and disposable unit of the Works Ministry started last month.
The CEO position is open to foreigners to allow a wide range of talent to sustain the recently revived Uganda Airlines.
Before the launch of the airline, Mr Muleya had been serving as a technical adviser with Mr Ephraim Bagenda,an aeronautical engineer, holding the managing director’s role..
However, Mr Bagenda has since been moved to a new position of director of engineering and maintenance.
