Deutsche Lufthansa recently revealed a reshuffling of its executive board, with key changes taking effect in the coming months.

Departures and Appointments

Chief Financial Officer Remco Steenbergen is set to leave the company, prompting Michael Niggemann to step in as the interim CFO, alongside his current board member responsibilities. Following Steenbergen's departure on May 7, three other executive-board members - Christina Foerster, Harry Hohmeister, and Detlef Kayser - will also bid farewell on June 30.

New Faces

In light of these changes, Grazia Vittadini has been appointed as the new chief technology officer, taking on additional sustainability duties. Furthermore, Dieter Vranckx, the current CEO of Swiss International Airlines, is joining the board to oversee global markets and commercial steering hubs.

Shifting Responsibilities

As part of the restructuring, customer experience and group brand management will transition to global markets and commercial steering hubs under Vranckx's purview. Vittadini and Vranckx are both slated to assume their roles on July 1 for a three-year term.
