政治黑手逼马航CEO提前下课!Where Mueller failed

马航CEO提前下课内幕惊爆!他是被政治黑手逼走的!

灾难重重的马航刚刚取得第一次盈利之际,从海外重金礼聘担任集团总执行长的企业奇才却宣布提前下课,拂袖而去了!

马航CEO穆勒日前忽然宣布由于《个人因素》决定提前结束聘约;今年9月走人!他的合约原本到2018年5月才届满。

穆勒是国际航空界公认的经营奇才,具有令一家航空公司起死回生的高超手腕。奈何经济奇才始终无法逾越政治门槛,他大刀阔斧改革马航的方针已经损害了某些政治大人物的利益,利用阿拉赋予的特权,他们终于也把这个经济奇才搞死了,搞得他拂袖而去,丢下烂摊子不管了,就让马航继续腐烂下去了。

自从穆勒上任初期,当局确实赋予穆勒极大的权力整顿马航,包括将2万受薪员工大量裁退高达6000人、重整全球航线,将所有不能为马航带来利润的航线停飞、终止所有无关紧要的供应商合约;种种雷霆行动确实收到奇效,马航终于在连续多年亏损之后,于今年2月迎来首个转亏为盈的月份。

然而从上个世纪80年代开始,马航就供养著一大群蛀米虫和寄生虫,他们仗着巫统的势力,就像吸血鬼一样依附在马航身上大肆吸血。尤其当他们完全掌控马航管理层之后更加嚣张跋扈;马航各种经费开销都以报大数《买贵了》呈报上去骗钱;马航赚到的钱却都进了私人口袋;如此只有支出没有收入的航空公司,怎样顶?

马航因此连续20多年亏损,年年都要政府拿人民血汗钱出来补贴。现在马航的主人国阵领导人好不容易下了一点点决心,找来欧洲的企业管理高手整顿马航;然而早已病入膏肓的马航,无论动哪个部位的手术,都难免伤害到巫统权贵的利益。穆勒纵然有通天手段,也无法从马航身上拿开政治黑手。最后心灰意冷的穆勒,唯有决定提前解约,返回欧洲;对马航已经哀莫大于心死。

更好笑的是前任CEO看到穆勒终于沉不住气被逼走了,竟然第一个跳出来高喊《马航CEO应该给回大马国内马来精英管理》。马航连年亏损,不就是全拜《马来CEO精英》所赐吗?穆勒走了,如果又让经营什么都死的马来精英《回朝复辟》,政府又想拿出多少百亿出来给马航继续挥霍?

马来西亚航空公司19日宣布,公司执行长兼常务董事米勒将于今年9月提前离职。

马航在一份声明中说,米勒以“个人处境改变”为由,提出提前结束3年的工作合同。马航方面已着手寻找继任者,米勒会继续留任6个月至今年9月。马航和米勒本人都没有提及离任的具体原因。

马航董事会主席诺尔·优素福表示,米勒自加入马航以来,参与了重组工作,帮助马航走上复兴的正确轨道,并已取得一些令人鼓舞的进展。

因运营成本过高、受到亚航等廉价航空公司竞争等原因,马航近年来连年亏损。2014年马航MH370航班和MH17航班接连失事令公司雪上加霜。2014年底,马航退市开始重组,随后成立新马航。

2015年5月米勒接任马航首席执行官,马航看中了他之前在其他航空公司任职的经历,包括带领爱尔兰国营航空公司走出困境。

米勒上任后,马航大幅削减员工并计划淘汰部分客机,停飞了不少亏损的长途航线,更加注重中程航线,以期转型为一家区域航空公司。去年12月,马 航宣布与阿联航空达成合作协议,利用后者广泛的航线网络。今年2月马航实现近年来首次月度盈利,并希望在2018年扭亏为盈。

Where Mueller failed

He got rid of excess workers, unneeded suppliers and unprofitable routes, but he could not remove political control.

FMT letter from Marion Tharsis via email

Khazanah Nasional Berhad probably expected too much from Christoph Mueller when it hired him to work his charm on MAS. Despite his glorious past, the turnaround expert probably didn’t count on the the work culture and ethics and, most of all, the political environment in a government-linked company.

Mueller made all the obvious moves. He trimmed the work force, removed unwanted suppliers and closed unprofitable routes. What he could not do was remove political control. He probably learned soon enough that it would be futile to continue with his work, with so many hands pulling him from all sides to do their bidding.

Another person may try his or her hand at making MAS profitable again, but the same pressures will reduce the CEO’s position to that of a puppet to be manipulated.

So our once glorious airline is back to square one. The competition is overwhelming. Other carriers, including our very own AirAsia, are always looking into ways to make their companies more profitable through innovation.

We should not expect too much from the incoming CEO. He or she may be prevented from cleaning up certain kinds of mess. For example, he or she might not get a free hand to select a management team that would be capable of taking MAS on the path of good and solid governance.

An airline cannot run effectively merely on superficial changes. It needs an operating system that is smooth, unhampered, cohesive, innovative and competitive. Only then can it stay afloat in a tight and narrow market and play on a field that keeps re-inventing itself.

An airline that is subject to too much control will keep failing and continue to be an embarrassment.
