La Spina replaces Rosaline (Ros) Ng who will work with La Spina during a transition period and leave Boral in early 2021.
Joining Boral after 14 years at Qantas in a number of strategy and finance roles, including as Group CFO for five years and most recently as CEO Qantas International, La Spina's responsibilities have encompassed all aspects of finance and strategy, including balance sheet management, capital allocation, technology, procurement and portfolio re-alignment.
La Spina has a Bachelor of Business (Accounting) from Swinburne University, a Graduate Diploma Investment & Finance from the Australian Securities Institute. He is also a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants.
Boral’s CEO & managing director Zlatko Todorcevski said: “We look forward to Tino joining the Boral team. He brings a strong track record of financial and strategic business leadership. His time at Qantas has given him valuable experience and proven his ability to manage and contribute to the leadership of large scale, complex, listed businesses in challenging conditions.
“He has proven operational skills including the delivery of change and transformation as well as strong technical skills as a strategic CFO, M&A transactions and capital allocation, all of which will be critically important in his role at Boral.”
Todorcevski thanked Ros Ng for her long service and contribution to Australia-headquartered Boral. “With 24 years of service, Ros Ng has had a long career with Boral across a number of senior finance roles including as Boral’s CFO since 2013 and Chairman of USG Boral for the past three years. Her substantial contribution and hard work have been highly appreciated. I thank Ros for the support she has given me as Boral’s CEO, and for the valuable assistance she will provide in the coming months of transition as we complete the review of Boral’s portfolio and move to the next steps.”
