Adrian Hunt was 57 at the time of his retirement, not exactly "young something". Wyatt is 49, not exactly young either....
I guess you are referring to Carl Michel, an Oxford and Harvard-graduate who became Deutsche BA
's CEO in 1997 at the age of 33. He was a protegé of Bob Ayling and widely tipped as a possible Ayling successor. Ayling promoted Michel to Commercial Director of British Airways in summer 1999 and Michel was replaced at Deutsche BA
by Adrian Hunt (who was Michel's COO before).
After Bob Ayling was replaced as BA
's CEO by Rod Eddington in 2000, Eddingtopn cleaned the house from Ayling's buddies. As Carl Michel faced the axe, he left the company in November 2000. Michel became CEO of Ision, the German web-hosting and e-solutions group bought by Energis, in 2001. Ision went bancrupt in 2002. In April 2003, he became Director of Product Strategy at OPODO, the internet travel platform.
