New MD for Babcock Aus

Rumour has it that Mr Boag has been stood aside and Ms Adams now had the reins.



Any reason given for the change?

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer individual, what goes around, comes around.

Hello Karma, bye bye MD!

Could this be the end of top cover and special deals for 'the boys' who are masquerading as managers? A few of the hand picked lap dogs might be nervous.

under jb the babcock business has got stronger in ems and offshore which keeps people employed. You can all be as nasty as you like. At least he came from the industry and not business school.

Brother, it looks like you're outnumbered.

Babcock got bigger, not stronger, and micromanaging strangled the vitality out of the sharp end. There was no leadership, only control.

As far as coming from the industry, what does that mean? Hasn't touched an aircraft in 20 years, never an operator, always a wheeler and dealer.

Generation Snowflake probably needs that in these days of entitlement.

Man up. The digital age and stupification is real unfortunately.

Doesn't worry me mate, I speak as I find and i only had good experiences with JB over the years so i won't be joining your private character assassination.

Speaking as i find though, you must be a bit of a sad little mongrel obviously registering for PPRuNe just to take pot shots at JB.

Bro there's nothing private about character assassinating that individual.... it was happening most days company wide.

If you only had good experiences with the individual in question, then perhaps you are the individual in question! .... or one of his yes men??

What a shame that there is a group of people who want to kick someone when they are down. Good on Brother for sticking up for JB.

I had contractual dealings with Babcock when requiring 1 month of contract helicopter support for my company a couple of years ago. It was all handled by JB and his team simply and professionally and the service and support provided was excellent.

I can remember when he flew as a FO in offshore - his first job I think.

Goggle Up - Well what sort of response did you expect to get considering you and others just bagged the crap out of him in nearly every post on this thread. PPRuNe is no different to the Just Helicopters forum these days.

Well said!

In a time when a great many of our colleagues are struggling to find jobs or those with jobs are finding their terms and conditions 'squeezed' he kept the Australian operation afloat and won more than his fair share of contracts and kept a lot of our friends and colleagues in jobs! That is something not to be knocked!
