According to the TV news, the crash was due the lack of adequate experience of the pilot. A junior pilot with just 50 hours on Boeing 777 was flying the plane and that too for the first time to San Francisco, where he had never landed previously.

The CEO may say that the crash was not because of mechanical failure, but the the fact that the company assigned this flight to an inexperienced pilot is itself a gross error on the part of the company and they have to accept 100% blame for the crash.
