Qantas has promoted its Loyalty CMO, Stephanie Tully, to executive manager of group brand and marketing.

Tully fills the gap left by Thomas McColl-Jones, who resigned from the group brand role in November after just a year with the airline.

Tully has been with Qantas for the past 11 years working across customer experience design and delivery, product strategy and marketing. She has been the CMO for Qantas Loyalty for just over two years.

Tully will now report directly to the airline’s group executive of brand, marketing and corporate affairs, Olivia Wirth.

In an internal statement to staff, Qantas highlighted Tully’s brand commitment and experience across product strategy, marketing and customer experience.

“Her passion for our brand and her ability to lead a high-performing team, together with her deep understanding of our customers, makes Stephanie an ideal fit for this role, which is considered Qantas’ chief marketing role,” the statement read.

The top Loyalty marketing job will now be taken up by Tanya Bulkin, who was formerly head of brand, planning and member marketing and has been with Qantas since 2004. As part of her appointment, Qantas said Bulkin will have a dual reporting line into Loyalty CEO, Lesley Grant, and Tully.

People in vegan houses shouldn't throw bacon

Picture this. You’re at a Gourmerican burger joint chomping a cheeseburger, when an outspoken vegan friend starts preaching that you’re killing the planet. Last week, that same vegan downed a pricey glass of pinot before their flight to a far-flung destination, armed with their strongest mossie repellant and first aid kit. Anything amiss?

The role of the CMO is evolving: Are you keeping up?

My (amazing) vacation in the Galapagos Islands earlier in the year got me thinking about Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution. What does this have to do with the role of today’s CMO, you ask? Plenty.
