KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 8): AirAsia Group Bhd has appointed Veranita Yosephine Sinaga (pix) as CEO of PT AirAsia Indonesia Tbk, replacing Dendy Kurniawan who has stepped down after three years on the job.

In her new role, Veranita will be responsible for the airline's operations in Indonesia.

Prior to joining AirAsia, Veranita served as sales director at Kraft Heinz Indonesia, where she led and orchestrated multiple commercial growth initiatives. She also spent a number of years with Danone Waters Indonesia and British American Tobacco Indonesia.
