<p style="text-align: justify;">Hogan will leave the company on July 1, 2017.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">Gammell, Etihad’s chief people and performance officer, will assume full management responsibilities of his new role immediately, a statement said.</p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">Gammell is Etihad Aviation Group’s current chief people and performance officer and has been a member of the executive leadership since joining the business in 2009, where he has led the creation of a performance culture across the group.</p>
