New CEO for Virgin Australia

Paul Scurrah has been formally unveiled as Virgin Australia's new MD and chief executive.

He takes over in the hot seat from March 25, replacing John Borghetti.

Scurrah has previously held a number of executive positions in the transport and travel industry including as CEO at port operator DP World Australia and Queensland Rail.

He also worked at Flight Centre and Tourism Queensland, as well as rival Qantas.

"Paul's significant leadership in driving transformation and improving customer satisfaction in complex and challenging businesses is highly impressive, and his background in aviation provides the right foundation to steer the Virgin Australia Group into the future," said Virgin chair, Elizabeth Bryan.

Borghetti has served as Virgin CEO for eight years and was praised by the board for 'pioneering a major transformation in the aviation industry to reposition the airline as a formidable competitor.'
