The Chairman of Qantas, Margaret Jackson, today announced the appointment of General Peter Cosgrove AC MC as a Non-Executive Director of the Board of Qantas Airways Limited.

General Cosgrove will fill a casual vacancy on the Qantas Board, taking up the position from today.

"I am very pleased to welcome Peter, one of Australia's most respected individuals, to the Board. The intelligence and leadership he has displayed during his distinguished military career will be invaluable," Ms Jackson said.

General Cosgrove was the Chief of the Australian Defence Force from 3 July 2002 until his retirement this month.

He has served in the Australian Army in a variety of roles in Australia and overseas since entering the Royal Military College of Duntroon in 1965.

One of his greatest achievements was his command of the international forces in East Timor from 1999 until the force was withdrawn in February 2000, for which General Cosgrove was appointed a Companion of the Military Division of the Order of Australia.

He was awarded the Military Cross for his service in Vietnam early in his career, and has received several foreign awards including the Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit (CNZM) and Commander of the United States Legion of Merit.

General Cosgrove was Australian of the Year in 2001.

 rotfl  Cosgrove might have been the ex-chief of defense, but he's an Army general . . .

Another job for the boys? Or does QF like his impeccable public credentials and good relations with the government?
