Jetstar restructures IT team

Jetstar is preparing for changes to how it manages technology within the business that will include a restructure of its IT team.

Jetstar Group chief information officer Grainne Kearns has helped develop the new structure and will oversee the airline’s transition.

Kearns was recruited to help bolster Jetstar’s IT systems as the group grew to encompass four airlines: Jetstar Australia and New Zealand, Singapore, Japan and Vietnam.

Following the transition to the new model Kearns will depart, with the CIO expected to move on some time around August.

“I would like to thank Grainne for her efforts and her contribution in improving and uplifting Jetstar’s technology over the past two-and-a-half years,” said Jetstar Group CFO Race Strauss.

“She has led us quite some way from ‘start-up’ to ‘enterprise’, delivering constantly along the way.”

“We have commenced a process to appoint a new group chief information officer who will take responsibility for the oversight of all technology within Jetstar,” the CFO said.

“Jetstar is an incredibly exciting business to work for and we are expecting to get significant interest in the role.”

Jetstar has begun advertising for the CIO role.
