DUBBED “Captain Snooze” by his staff, Allan Williams, the Regional General Manager Qantas ACT, is taking that sign off his door.
Apparently, Alan can snooze anywhere.
After 40 years and two months with the company, he’s ready to pass through the departure gates to the life of a retiree… who is unlikely to stop working.
He reminisced of a unique aviation journey at a first-class farewell cocktail party with current, former Qantas staff and industry professionals at the National Press Club .
His extracurricular activities have seen him on the committee circuit of notable causes and many he will continue, particularly Hands Across Canberra, an innovative philanthropic organisation that shares donations among many, the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal Fundraising Committee and as chair of the Canberra Convention Bureau.
We who have enjoyed his company on many occasions wish him well and know he’ll be just as enthusiastic for Canberra and its community in his retirement… and he can stroll home for that kip.
