His resume includes management of one of the Boston Consulting Group’s (BCG) largest and longest running client relationships with Qantas Airlines.

He also oversaw BCG’s global airline practice before his tenure as head of the group’s New York business.

More recently, Mr Love has served as Senior Advisor to the Chairman, Fortescue Metals Group and Minderoo from September 2018 to March 2019, was a member of the WA Regional Development Trust from 2018 to 2021 and consultant to the Minister for Regional Development.

“It is a significant achievement for SMS to have secured an incoming chairman of the calibre of Mr Love.

“His breadth of experience, both in Australia and the US, will benefit the growth of SMS and help it position for strong future growth in the aviation industry and beyond and enable the company to effectively harness and grow the commercial potential of its internationally certified structural monitoring technology.”

His base salary is $325,000 per annum plus superannuation and is eligible for various incentives that may be issued subject to shareholder approval.
