The Skypower Aviation  Handling Company Limited now has a new chief executive officer in Mr. Isaac Orolugbagbe.
This comes as the company pledged to provide efficient and speedy cargo, passenger and ramp services to its customers.

Before his latest appointment, Orolugbagbe was appointed as the company’s chief operating officer, following the privatisation of the company by the federal government.

Similarly, former managing director and chief executive officer of the company, Mr. Chike Ogeah, who saw through the company’s privatisation priocess, was elevated to the position of non-executive director.

According to sa statement issued by the company, the two positions, endorsed by the Chairman of SAHCOL, Dr. Taiwo Afolabi, took effect from 1 May 2010.

Meanwhile, Chairman of Skyway Aviation Handling Company Limited (SAHCOL), Dr. Taiwo Afolabi, has promised to replicate the company’s excellent service delivery in the maritime sector in aviation.

Dr. Afolabi made the promise at the company’s retreat for management staff at Excellence Hotel in Lagos.
The company’s parent body, the Sifax Group, only recently acquired erstwhile government-owned Skypower Aviation Handling Company Limited (SAHCOL), a subsidiary of liquidated Nigeria Airways.

Afolabi pledged the total support of the company’s Board in ensuring that it performed optimally to the satisfaction of its customers and benefit of all stakeholders in the aviation sector.

He said the retreat was part of series of manpower development programmes for various categories of staff, including managers, supervisors, technical and operational staff.

The company’s Head of Public Communications, Mr. Basil Agboarumi, said the theme of the retreat, “Changing today for a better tomorrow,” clearly encompassed the provision of excellent customer experience.

He said the retreat, which is part of the ongoing restructuring of the company, after its recent privatization and eventual handover by the Sifax Group, focused on managing culture change from public to private sector and building a customer focused organisation.
