The Qantas Group has appointed Stephanie Tully as the new Chief Executive Officer of Jetstar. This follows the announcement in June that current Jetstar CEO, Gareth Evans, will leave his role by the end of 2022.
Tully joined the national carrier in 2004 and has worked across operational, commercial, marketing and customer loyalty functions in progressively more senior roles. She has been a Group Executive and Chief Customer Officer since 2019.
As a result of this appointment, Markus Svensson will be promoted to the Chief Customer Officer role and will become a member of the Group Executive Committee reporting to the Group CEO.
Svensson is currently the Executive Manager of Network, Revenue Management and Alliances, responsible for overseeing a large part of the commercial strategy for Qantas International and Qantas Domestic. He was previously Regional General Manager for Qantas in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. Before joining Qantas in 2011, he held senior roles at Bain and Co and in telecommunications in Australia, Sweden and Korea.
Tully and Svensson will begin transitioning to their new roles shortly with detailed handovers made possible by the internal succession, ahead of a formal handover in November.
