Lufthansa Cargo makes senior management level changes

posted on 4th June 2019 by Justin Burns

Lufthansa Cargo has made some changes to its management team and says the reassignments are all part of the normal rotation policy.

These include from 1 July, Jettainer managing director (MD), Carsten Hernig taking over as head of region Latin America & Caribbean. This move sees Hernig switching back to the parent company after five-and-a-half years with the ULD company, a subsidiary of Lufthansa.

He will be based in Sao Paolo and report directly to Dorothea von Boxberg, board member product and sales, in his new position.

Effective 1 July, Thomas Sonntag will take over as MD of Jettainer. The qualified mechanical engineer, joined Lufthansa Cargo 10 years ago as vice president procurement & infrastructure. Currently, he is not only responsible for supply and facility management, but also the logistics procurement cluster within the Lufthansa Group.

Gunnar Löhr, previously head of region Latin America & Caribbean, will assume the role of head of supply management and infrastructure at Lufthansa Cargo, effective 1 July.

Löhr will thereby return to the company headquarters in Frankfurt. He will be responsible for procurement and supplier management at the cargo airline in his future role and will report directly to Martin Schmitt, board member finance and human resources.

Lufthansa Cargo said these swaps are intended as staff development measures within the context of Lufthansa’s normal rotation policy for high-ranking management positions.
