Lufthansa Systems has appointed a new co-CEO, with Dr Thomas Wittmann having started the role as of 1 July. Wittmann is responsible for all production and technology issues in the company and will closely collaborate with the IT organisations of the Lufthansa Group. He will lead the company together with CEO Olivier Krueger, who has held his CEO position since 2015.

Wittmann began his career at Lufthansa Systems in 1995 after earning a doctorate in physics.
