The changes will take effect from 1 October 2019, allowing Mr La Spina to close out the current fiscal year through to annual reporting.

 From mid-May, Ms Hudson will be CFO Designate and will work closely with Mr La Spina to ensure a smooth handover.

Narendra Kumar will remain Acting Qantas International CEO while the CFO transition is completed.

A process to appoint a replacement Chief Customer Officer is expected to start shortly.

 All three roles will continue to report to Qantas Group CEO, Alan Joyce.

Mr Joyce said, ďThese changes show the depth of talent in our Group executive team, and a large part of that comes from our practice of giving people exposure in different areas across a diverse portfolio of businesses. Vanessa started with Qantas 24 years ago in finance and audit, before moving to senior roles in inflight services, commercial planning, sales and distribution, and regional head of Qantas in the US. It means she brings a deep understanding of our business as well as a strong background in finance to the role of CFO. Tino has been with Qantas for 13 years in a series of senior finance roles, which has given him a detailed understanding of what drives results in each part of the Group. There is a lot of positive momentum across the Qantas Group. We have a great executive team in place and I look forward to working with them over the years ahead as we deliver for our customers and shareholders.Ē
