IAG has parted ways with its head of digital and technology Claire Rawlins as of today after just under a year in the role.
It did not provide a reason for the sudden departure. It is understood Rawlins is not immediately moving to a new role. An IAG spokesperson declined to comment.
She led a team tasked with providing digital and innovation services, hunting for emerging technology, simplifying core platforms, and building new technology offerings.
The function was a pet project of new CEO Peter Harmer, who was promoted from chief digital officer and head of Digital Labs to IAG CEO in last October.
Rawlins' deputy Peter Bonney - who joined IAG from Deloitte last November - is leading the Digital Labs team in Rawlins' absence on an "interim" basis.
An IAG spokesperson would not comment on whether Rawlins' role will be replaced.
"I look forward to working with Peter [Bonney] to further refine our digital offering and to develop new and innovative ways to connect and engage with our customers and partners," Harmer said in a statement.
