The national air transport company, Cameroon Airline Corporation aka Camair-co announced recently that it is looking for a Sales and Marketing Director. Camair-co is looking for a motivated professional with very high management skills whose contribution to the Commercial Management and Marketing will be decisive in strengthening the commercial performance of the airline, Camair-co said in a call to application released this Thursday, July 16, 2015 on the national bilingual daily Cameroon Tribune. Interestingly, the air transport company that has been a Francophone private preserve ever since they chased away Anglophones airline gurus like John Tabi stated that candidates must, among other things hold a BAC(The Anglophone equivalence of GCE A level) + 5 years in marketing, sales or management, with a minimum of 10 years of experience preferably in an airline. Nothing can best represent the failure of the CPDM regime than the fact that jobs that were in the yesteryears meant only for children from highly placed Francophone Beti-Ewondo background are now being advertised.
A sister publication, Cameroun info.net reported that through this call for applications for the position of Sales and Marketing, camair-co wants to rebuild a direction that had disappeared from the organizational chart of the company for almost a year. The last call for applications to this function dates back to 10th of October 2013, after the sacking of French man Christian Perchat. Our senior economic reporter who contributed to this report observed that he hopes "Camair-co will move away from their traditional practice of flying coffins to flying aeroplanes".
