EbeneMagazine – AU – Virgin Australia board resigns en masse


Nine members of Virgin Australia’s board of directors, including president Elizabeth Bryan, tendered or indicated their resignation, as airline finalizes sale to Bain Capitale

Bryan and five others – Trevor Bourne, Kenneth Dean, Allan Houston, Judith Swales and Marvin Tan – have resigned as directors effective October 20, the company said today in a disclosure to the ‘Australian Securities Exchange

He adds that the company has yet to receive formal resignations from three other directors – Raymond Gammell, Hou Wei and Kevin Xing

« Accordingly, in order to ensure that the reconstitution of the board of directors takes effect immediately, the directors of the deed have exercised their powers to replace directors who cease to exercise their functions as director on the date of ‘today,’ says Virgin Australia

The airline’s website says the company had 11 board members, including outgoing chief executive Paul Scurrah and non-executive director Warwick Negus

In light of the resignations, the directors of the act have appointed a new director, Alan Hunt, who, along with Scurrah and Negus, will remain directors until the airline’s sale is completed, slated for November

Earlier this month, the company announced on October 15 that Scurrah would step down once the transaction was completed, likely in November as well, and that Jayne Hrdlicka would succeed him.

Days earlier, the Australian Transport Workers’ Union (TWU) suspended negotiations on new company deals, amid rumors that Scurrah had been fired and Bain was looking for a low-cost model for Virgin Australia

In an Oct. 14 statement, the union cites Bain’s commitment to « a higher capacity airline, maximizing jobs, retaining the regional Vara operation, tiered cabin classes, lounges and ‘airport and the international branch of the airline’

TWU National Secretary Michael Kain asked the federal government for clarification and said: “While the airline’s plan and scope as outlined in August by Bain Capital has already been scrapped, it is is a serious betrayal that must be remedied »
