As states and territories start to re-open to one another, a new airline is set to launch to the skies! Australia’s new, and only independent, low-cost airline Bonza CEO Tim Jordan announced this week the inaugural CFO and leadership team taking the airline skyward!

Lidia Valenzuela has joined as Chief Financial Officer. Most recently at ASX 300 listed company Superloop, Lidia has more than 15 years’ experience in finance leadership roles across a wide range of highly competitive and regulated industries including Telco, Financial Services, Childcare and Technology. 

A member of CPA Australia (CPA), with a Bachelor of Commerce, Accounting and Business Information Systems, Lidia has an attraction to changing the status quo, while enabling an environment of continuous improvement that allows organisations to deliver positive financial outcomes. Lidia will be responsible for all financial functions including accounting, forecasting, tax, audit and the airline’s project management office. Lidia will also lead the financial framework to work in partnership with the leadership team to deliver against cost control and growth targets.

Tim Jordan, CEO added; “The winning recipe to any success story is people. It’s absolutely critical we have the right leadership team, who are wholeheartedly committed to making a real difference to travelers and communities in Australia.
