Class Notes – Volume 117, Number 2

Exciting career transition news from Down Under — I’ve learned that Reed Tanger has been named the next CFO for Qantas Domestic. His new role will include Qantas Domestic’s network and revenue management. Previously, Reed served more than three years in Sydney as head of group strategy, where he was instrumental in the group’s competitive strategy efforts, as well as group network and fleet planning. Prior to working for Qantas, Reed was a global aviation consultant with Booz & Company, based in Washington, D.C. and London.

Precocious Jonathan Safran Foer published his first (excellent) novel, Everything Is Illuminated, while the rest of us were still recovering from college hangovers. He has received glowing advance press for his third novel, Here I Am, released in September. I can’t wait to read it.

Congratulations, Reed and Jonathan! Are there any other career milestones out there?
