Qantas reshuffles executive leadership
Sydney, August 30, 2017

Qantas Group has announced a reorganisation of its executive leadership team, taking effect in November this year.


Alison Webster, currently executive manager of freight, catering & airports, will become CEO of Qantas International. In her nearly 30 years’ experience in aviation, including 13 at Qantas, she has held senior executive roles across commercial, customer, and operations at Qantas and British Airways.



She replaces Gareth Evans, who has been appointed CEO of Jetstar Group, while current Jetstar Group chief Jayne Hrdlicka will become CEO of Qantas loyalty and digital ventures, which now also includes innovation.


Meanwhile, Lesley Grant, currently CEO of Qantas loyalty, will be Qantas’ new group executive of people and culture, succeeding Jon Scriven who is retiring after over eight years at the company.


As well, Andrew David, present CEO of Qantas Domestic, will take on additional responsibility for Qantas freight, catering and airports.


The new executive leaders will report to Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce, who said the changes reflect talent optimisation and renewal in the company.


“Over the past three years, our senior executive team has led the group through a major turnaround. We’re now entering a phase of ongoing improvement and innovation, and these changes will help drive that," said Joyce in a statement.
