Manufacturer of advanced carbon fibre composites Quickstep Holdings has appointed a new managing director and chief executive following a resignation.

David Marino's decision to step down from the role, for personal and family reasons, has opened the door for Mark Burgess, who will commence official duties from mid-May 2017.

Burgess is currently vice president of Honeywell Aerospace Asia-Pacific.

He has been credited with driving sustained profitable growth during his four years in that role across a defence, space and commercial helicopter portfolio.

Previously, Burgess worked with BAE Systems in the UK, Middle East and south-east Asia in sales, contracts, project and general management roles.

Chairman of Quickstep Tony Quick welcomed Burgess to the company.

"We are very pleased to attract someone of Mark's calibre and international experience to take on the leadership of the company at this exciting stage in the company's development," he said.

Speaking of his appointment, Burgess said, "I pay tribute to the instrumental role David has played in building the foundations for the future success of the business. Quickstep has a highly capable executive team, supported by an internationally regarded board, and I am delighted to take over the leadership of Quickstep at this exciting point in its growth."

Marino advised the board of his decision to resign citing family demands that will see him spend more time in Melbourne, which Quickstep said is inconsistent with the commitment that the business requires at this stage of its global strategic growth.

The board paid tribute to Marino for his significant work achievement, saying he has established the company as a reliable supplier on the C-130J and JSF programs, and has completed the investment that will enable Quickstep to cope with the JSF growth and exploit other opportunities in aerospace manufacturing.
