Burnett to join Intrepid
INTREPID Group looks to be positioning itself for a listing on the Australian Securities Exchange, this morning confirming Michael Burnett will become the company’s first Chief Financial Officer since it returned to private ownership in 2015.
Burnett, whose resignation as Helloworld Travel CFO was confirmed yesterday (TD 28 Oct), will join Intrepid in Jan, and has extensive experience in public companies including at CSL.
He’s just one of several senior appointments the company announced today.
Natalie Kidd will expand her role from MD of PEAK DMC to become Intrepid’s new Chief Operating Officer, while Leigh Barnes, currently Chief Purpose Officer, will take on a newly created role of Chief Customer Officer, with responsibility for customer experience, digital, brand and advocacy on key issues.
Recruitment for a new Chief People Officer will also commence by the end of 2019.
Earlier this month Brett Mitchell was promoted from MD APAC to Chief Commercial Officer, with MD James Thornton saying the leadership changes were part of the company’s 2025 strategy, recognising the “considerable opportunities that Intrepid has to grow its vertically integrated business globally.
“I’m thrilled to have assembled such an experienced and dedicated senior team to lead our business into the future,” he said.
