Ex-Qantas man to head up Airservices Australia board

Former Qantas executive general manager David Forsyth has been appointed as chair of the Airservices Australia board.

Mr Forsyth, who has been a board member since January 2005, will replace Nick Burton Talyor.

Federal infrastructure minister Anthony Albanese said: “Mr Forsyth will take up his position at a time when the Government is developing Australia’s first ever aviation White Paper, a critical policy document outlining how the Government will manage the nation’s growing aviation industry over coming decades.”

Mr Albanese has also announced that current board members Henk Meertens and Alice Williams have agreed to serve another term, and Warren Mundy has been appointed as a new board member.

“Mr Meertens’ long history within the aviation industry and Ms Williams’ expertise in commerce and financial analysis will continue to be of great benefit to the board’s deliberations.

“Dr Warren Mundy will bring to the position significant industry experience, particularly in the areas of airport planning and long-term corporate and aviation strategy,” Mr Albanese said.

The Australian Government-owned corporation Airservices Australia manages air traffic operations for more than three million domestic and international flights, equivalent of 11 per cent of the world’s airspace.
