CHC Group’s general counsel hands in resignation
The general counsel and chief administrative officer of helicopter operator CHC Group has decided to resign from his post.
CHC said last Friday that Hooman Yazhari notified the company of his resignation from the position of general counsel and chief administrative officer to pursue another employment opportunity.
Yazhari has served in these capacities since March 2015. The effective date of the resignation will be February 2, 2018.
As a result, Imran Hayat, currently the chief compliance officer and litigation counsel, will assume the role of interim general counsel, reporting to Karl Fessenden, CHC’s president and CEO. In this role, Hayat will be responsible for the CHC’s legal matters globally.
Fessenden said: “We appreciate Hooman’s many contributions to CHC. His counsel and direction on legal matters and strategy has greatly benefited the company. We wish him continued success in his future endeavors.
“Having worked closely with Imran on many complex and challenging legal matters, I have full confidence that Imran and our legal team will continue to manage our legal matters effectively during this transitional period.”
