Thursday, July 5th, 2012 - Air Pacific
Nadi, Fiji - Air Pacific, Fiji’s International Airline, today announced that Victor Sharan, the company’s Regional General Manager Australia, New Zealand, and Asia, will retire in August after more than 42 years with the company.

Victor began his Air Pacific career in Fiji where he held many roles and made great contribution to a number of departments within the company. He joined the company as an Airport Traffic Officer, and was subsequently promoted to broader roles with increasing responsibility including Marketing Development Manager, Global General Sales Manager, Global Freight Director, and finally Regional Director Australia and New Zealand based in Sydney. Victor was appointed as the Regional Director Australia in 1998 and took on the additional responsibilities of New Zealand and Asia in 2011.

Dave Pflieger, Air Pacific's Managing Director & CEO thanked and complimented Mr. Sharan for his many years of service by saying “Victor's many contributions and leadership have helped make Air Pacific what it is today--one of the South Pacific's most successful airlines and a well respected company that has withstood the difficult test of time and will be celebrating its 65th year of existence in 2012."

Mr. Pflieger added that "while all of us at Air Pacific, and all of our industry and trade partners, will miss Victor greatly, we will all be watching him enviously as he enjoys a well-deserved retirement."

Air Pacific plans to initiate a global search to fill this Sydney-based executive role, and Mr. Sharan will act as a commercial advisor to the CEO during and after its search – so that the company can continue to benefit from his well-respected sales and marketing insights and understanding.
