And the other shoe drops, Slosar gone

https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/...acific-airways

Slosar goes to be replaced by Patrick Healy in November.

John Slosar has resigned as chairman of Cathay Pacific Airways, the company has announced in a filing to the Hong Kong stock exchange, capping a tumultuous period of management changes at the company.

Patrick Healy, 53, also a Swire group executive, will replace Slosar once the company concludes its board meeting on November 6.

Indeed - the SCMP isn't anywhere near as biased as you would expect being owned by Alibaba. Not least because there are still a lot of gweilos there, particularly in (sub-)editorial roles.

maybe not as biased as you might expect but nothing to do with racial composition of the staff. Doggedness of the reporters is key.

Interesting development nonetheless. I assumed Slosar was safe (heís a PRC National from what I understand)

The news again, was reported by a Chinese media, BEFORE being officially announced by CX - just like the news of Hogg resigned (or been resigned) was reported by CCTV almost 20 min before CX put the news on its site.

So both high ranking Execs resignation news were first reported by Chinese news agency or media before the official announcements being put on CX site.

Retired, or "been retired" in passive voice (as in English Grammar).

At least if you are not directly employed by China government, you are not in danger to become "been suicided" or "been so depressed to commit suicided."

Retired from the company is very different from retired completely... They will likely go and work elsewhere after retiring from Swire....

The important timeframe is when the announcement was made to the stock exchange, not when its published on the CX website . As soon as itís announced on the stock exchange it hits the Bloomberg terminals and cctv is probably just good at scraping these things.

You seriously underestimate CCTV's role. It is never a station "scraping" these things. If anyone at this stage still does not think that at CX or HSBC who must go, not being decided by China but CX or HSBC tried to please China so to make some scapegoat, is being either naive, or truly has not had much idea on how Chinese government's standard procedures when it comes to anything they have full control whenever they want to.
