Qantas General Counsel to retire
Qantas Group Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce has announced that, effective 31 October, Brett Johnson will retire after more than 17 years as the Group’s General Counsel.
“Brett has had a major impact on the success of Qantas and his sound advice to the Board and me has been invaluable over many years,” Mr Joyce said.
“We wish Brett well in the next stage of his career.”
Johnson said he was sad to leave Qantas but was excited about the next phase of his career.
“Being General Counsel of this great Australian icon has been an honour and I have enjoyed working with all Qantas employees, particularly the great professionals within Qantas Legal,” he said.
Andrew Finch will take over the position of General Counsel, effective 1 November 2012.
“Andrew joins Qantas from Allens where he has been a Partner since 2002, specialising in corporate law,” Joyce said.
