Sören Stark (55) has taken over as chairman of the Executive Board of Lufthansa Technik, succeeding Dr Johannes Bussmann, who is leaving at his own request after a 23-year career at Lufthansa Group.
A further leadership change is that Harald Gloy (49) has succeeded Stark as the company’s chief operations officer (COO). Gloy takes responsibility as the ‘accountable manager’ in accordance with EASA Part 145 and is the contact person for aviation authorities with regard to Lufthansa Technik AG’s MRO operations. Dr William Willms continues to serve as chief financial officer (CFO) in the three-member executive board.
Stark joined Lufthansa Technik’s executive board in 2019, having previously been in charge of operations at Lufthansa Cargo AG for three years. He began his career at Lufthansa Technik in 2004 as managing director of Lufthansa Technik Logistik in Hamburg. From 2011 to 2016, the industrial engineer was in charge of Lufthansa Technik’s aircraft overhaul division.
With immediate effect, Harald Gloy will also serve as chief human resources officer (CHRO) and labour director, which was previously part of the area of responsibility of Johannes Bussmann. Gloy was most recently labour director and a member of the executive board of Lufthansa Cargo AG, responsible for operations. Prior to that, the engineering graduate held various management positions at Lufthansa Technik.
