Hrdlicka gone?

A mate pointed out to me a media release posted today to the NZ and Australian stock exchanges by A2 Milk indicating that Mrs Hrdlicka is their newly appointed CEO taking up the role at the start of FY19- so presume July 18.

Obviously didn't enjoy working as head of loyalty? Wasn't going to replace AJ? Does anyone recall how long ago that reshuffle happened when she moved on from JQ?

Under a Qantas (QAN) management restructure announced in August, Ms Hrdlicka took over the running of the Qantas loyalty business last month after running budget carrier Jetstar for the past five years.

From sources she did not do well at WOW.
Mr Evans is there at JQ to clean up in preparation for among other reasons IFRS16.

He will return to QAN...

Milk, skincare. Seems to be the path of failed JQ executives.

What's IFRS16?

I'm not surprised she has gone as it is a big drop in responsibility and prestige to go from being a Group CEO to being EM of a division that I imagine runs itself mostly. I think the HK debacle was her responsibility so from what I can tell if you cost the business a lot of money or damage its reputation, or both, you are eventually replaced.

All the noise is AJ staying for an extended period. She had already realised this and had applied for a number of top positions, CEO of A2 is a good appointment so why would she stay?

Debacle? No, no, no.

“Jetstar HK was a big positive for us, because we’ve been able to leverage off our learnings”.

Far be it for me to run to the defence of management executives but tell me Green Goblin and others who are implying the same:

I'm interested to know what you define as a "failed JQ executive"....really.

With return on capital at Jetstar at the best part of 15 percent including Jetstar Asia, an extremely good safety record and complaints from the rest of us tech crew now focused almost exclusively around rostering issues, it seems passing strange that this period of time would be aptly described as a failure by any objective measure.

If I take my retirement from Jetstar a little earlier than usual and choose to go back to GA at some point that I am therefore defined as a failure?

Or does every decision I ever make have to be seen as a tremendous success and every job I take necessarily bigger and better than the last? That would be a pretty high benchmark for anyone to live by. Perhaps you lot set me straight though.

Well put WN. I'm no apologist for QF management but I fail to see how becoming the CEO of A2 Milk with a market cap of $5B is a failure

The 'I make sure I'm home every night with my family' quote when here entire workforce is almost exclusively shift workers disengaged the entire workforce.

Appointing GS as chief pilot.

No Neos delivered.

On time performance turned to rubbish.

The J board fiasco.

Her presence at JQ was nothing but a negative.

Silly Willy- since when has a Low Cost Carrier returned 15%. No Airline in the world returns that! All Airlines need to cease to trade because Jetstar is amazing!

Lookleft.

IFRS19 comes into effect on 01/01/19. It is a new financial requirement that eliminates most rentals and leases from off balance sheet accounting. This will impact on companies credit ratings, borrowing costs and over gearing. I am confident there may be some major issues for the Qantas Group if the rumours about their accounting practices are true.

And this financial year , so I’m told , Income streams need to be “ teased from the integrated reporting model “ that Qantas Group has been using .
Should make it easier to discern where the money is actually realised next Financial Year .

Jane took control of the last EA and sorted that real quick when it was a mess.

Surely a good result for pilots? Does the rest really matter?
