CHC Group’s chief administrative officer has left the helicopter operator to pursue “another employment opportunity”, the company said.

Hooman Yazhari has served as CAO and general counsel since March 2015.

The effective date of the resignation will be February 2, 2018.

Imran Hayat, currently chief compliance officer and litigation counsel, will assume the role of interim general counsel, reporting to Karl Fessenden, CHC’s president and chief executive.

Mr Hayat will be responsible for CHC’s legal matters globally.

Mr Fessenden said: “We appreciate Hooman’s many contributions to CHC. His counsel and direction on legal matters and strategy has greatly benefited the Company. “We wish him continued success in his future endeavors.”

“Having worked closely with Imran on many complex and challenging legal matters, I have full confidence that Imran and our legal team will continue to manage our legal matters effectively during this transitional period,” added Fessenden.
