Air New Zealand appoints its new Chief People Officer

Published on : Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Joe McCollum is appointed as the new Chief People Officer of Air New Zealand. He is taking the role from Jodie King. Ms King is leaving the airline to become Chief People Officer at Vodafone New Zealand.

 

 

In announcing Mr McCollum’s appointment, Air New Zealand CEO Greg Foran said he would bring an extensive depth of global change management to the airline, as well as executive leadership experience forged in challenging environments.

 

 

Joe is no stranger to the type of large scale, rapid workplace change that Air New Zealand has ahead in the wake of Covid-19. He will be a key member of the team to rebuild their airline.

 

 

Mr McCollum is a former Group Human Resources Director at Spark and prior to that headed Human Resources for global chemicals giant ICI plc based out of London. He has also worked across the software, music and media industries. The airline has also contracted one of New Zealand’s most experienced employment relations practitioners, Paul Diver, to support Mr McCollum.

 

 

The news today comes after the national carrier started talking to staff about cutting up to 3,500 jobs, including making 387 pilots redundant.
