The company conducted the search for Qantas.

"Our team was honored to serve Qantas by drawing on our unmatched industry expertise and global network. It was a privilege for my Sydney colleague Tim Flay and I to work with the airline's leadership to assess and select a candidate with global experience, strong leadership abilities and the technical acumen to move Qantas' engineering and maintenance strategy forward."

Qantas operations group executive Lyell Strambi said, "Mr. Nassenstein's appointment represents a rare opportunity for the airline to bring external experience and a global perspective to the position and Qantas' engineering operations."
