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.
