JETSTAR Group CEO, Bruce Buchanan, has decided to call time on his nine-year career with the Qantas Group to explore new opportunities in helping other Australian firms looking to expand in Asia.
Buchanan is stepping down as part of a broader management restructuring at Qantas, which will see the Australian flag carrier split its international and domestic arms into separate businesses (TTG Asia e-Daily, May 22, 2012).
Buchanan will remain with Jetstar for the next six months to assist with the transition, after which he will provide consultancy services for an additional 18 months.
Jayne Hrdlicka, currently group executive, Strategy and Technology at Qantas, will assume Buchanan’s position as CEO, Jetstar Group.
