Hennekens will depart Qantas in September to join an unnamed company in France.
The Qantas official previously worked in France at Procter & Gamble and joined Qantas in 2012 from Contact Energy in New Zealand. He was chief technology officer at Qantas before being promoted as chief information officer.
The airline says it will undertake a worldwide search for a replacement.
In 2014, Indian software and services company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) announced it had upgraded Qantas’ Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 through a SaaS model hosted at Macquarie Telecom’s Sydney Intellicentre data centre. The new cloud-based version of the software provided Qantas with key benefits, including enhanced system functionality, reduced system management complexity and unification of vendors.
