Cathay Pacific says Chairman John Slosar resigns

SINGAPORE, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways said on Wednesday that its Chairman John Slosar had resigned from the board and will be replaced by Patrick Healy, a long-time executive at the airline's top shareholder Swire Pacific Ltd.

The resignation and appointment will take effect at Cathay's annual meeting on Nov 6, the carrier said in a statement.

Slosar's resignation follows the departure of CEO Rupert Hogg last month, after the Chinese aviation regulator increased scrutiny on the airline and its staff members following anti-government protests in Hong Kong. (Reporting by Jamie Freed; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
