Jakarta (ANTARA) - Garuda Indonesia appointed ex-president director of state-owned telecommunication company PT Industri Telekomunikasi Indonesia (INTI) Irfan Setiaputra as president director of the national flag carrier at its extraordinary meeting of shareholders here, Wednesday.

"Garuda Indonesia’s president director is Irfan Setiaputra," Sahala Lumban Gaol, who chaired the meeting, noted here on Wednesday.

Setiaputra was the PT INTI president director from 2009 to 2012. He was then appointed to lead several companies, including Cipta Kridatama, Reswarw Minerga Hatama, and Sigfox Indonesia.

Gaol noted that Dony Oskaria was appointed as deputy president director of Garuda Indonesia at the extraordinary meeting of shareholders.

The appointment of new president director and vice president director of Garuda Indonesia was part of the meeting's agenda. The other agenda pertained to a change in the company's organizational structure in response to a proposal from the board of commissioners through a letter, dated December 9, 2019, regarding an extraordinary meeting of Garuda Indonesia's shareholders.

The extraordinary meeting of shareholders was held in line with the Financial Service Authority’s (OJK's) Regulation No. 32/POJK.04/2014 on the plan and organization of a general meeting of publicly listed company's shareholders, according to information from Garuda Indonesia.

Special staff of the State-Owned Enterprises Ministry Arya Sinulingga had earlier noted that the new president director of Garuda Indonesia would be an outsider not embroiled in legal tussles. Related news: Garuda redirects Europe flights from Iran's airspace
