Race On for Garuda's Top Spot

Names Surface of Those Seeking to Lead the National Air Carrier.

(3/15/2002) Names and no small amount of controversy are surfacing in the race for the job of Garuda Indonesia Managing Director.

The suggestion that Samudera Sukardi, a 20-plus year veteran at the airline and the brother of Indonesia's Minister for State Owned Enterprises - Laksamana Sukardi, is a leading candidate for the post has raised issues of nepotism and potential conflicts of interest.Laksamana Sukardi's ministerial portfolio includes oversight of the national airline and the right to appoint the Managing Director of the airline.

Samudera Sukardi's current position is as the Managing Director of P.T. Abacus, a subsidiary of the airline charged with handling its reservations system.

Other names mentioned to be in contention for Garuda's top post are Emirsyah Satar who currently serves as the airline's Financial Director; Rudy Hardono Garuda's Operations Director; and Richard B. Sukardarusman, Garuda's Technical Director.
