• Boeing engineer recognised as future industry leader

    December 14, 2018

    Boeing Defence Australia Systems Engineer Alex Bowen-Rotsaert has been honoured by the Australian Industry & Defence Network Queensland (AIDN QLD), receiving the 2018 AIDN Queensland Young Achiever Award (YAA).

    The award recognises the important contribution Alex has made to the defence industry, and acknowledges his talent and drive to be a future industry leader.

    “It’s a privilege to be recognised amongst my under-30 peers in defence industry here in Queensland. Working on Project Currawong has been a phenomenal experience, from pre-contract prototype test and evaluation right through to formal acceptance testing and delivery,” said Bowen-Rotsaert.

    AIDN QLD President Carl Quarterman said Alex was a stand out during the judging process, having achieved so much at this early stage of his career.

    “Alex Bowen-Rotsaert was chosen as the AIDN QLD YAA 2018 winner due to his extraordinary ability, talent and achievements. AIDN QLD has won the last two years of the AIDN National YAA Awards and with Alex as our 2018 winner, we hope to make this three years in a row!” said Quarterman.

    “It is important to recognise talented, emerging leaders like Alex who will be key to the future of the defence industry.”

    The 2018 AIDN National Young Achiever Awards will be announced on the 13th of February 2019 at the AIDN National Annual Gala Dinner in Canberra. The winner will secure a place on the 2019 Defence Industry Study Course through the support of the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group and the Department of Defence.

    “Winning the national award would provide an exceptional opportunity for me to learn more about the networking and communication needs of the Australian Defence Force,” said Bowen-Rotsaert. “I can then use that knowledge at Boeing as we continue to adapt, evolve and iterate our products.”
