New chairman for Lufthansa Technik’s executive board


Lufthansa Technik’s executive board has a new chairman – Sören Stark. He took over the role from Dr Johannes Bussmann, who departs the Lufthansa Group at his own request after 23 years. Harald Gloy succeeds Stark as chief operations officer at the company.

Gloy thus bears responsibility as accountable manager in accordance with EASA Part 145 and is the contact person for aviation authorities with regards to Lufthansa Technik’s MRO operations. Dr William Willms continues to serve as chief financial officer in the three-member executive board team.

Stark joined Lufthansa Technik’s executive board in 2019. Previously, he was responsible in the executive board for operations at Lufthansa Cargo for three years. He began his career at Lufthansa Technik in 2004 as managing director of Lufthansa Technik Logistik in Hamburg, Germany. From 2011 to 2016, the industrial engineer was in charge of Lufthansa Technik’s aircraft overhaul division.

With immediate effect, Gloy will also head the executive board department Human Resources as chief human resources officer and labour director, which was previously part of Bussmann’s responsibilities. Gloy was most recently labour director and a member of the executive board of Lufthansa Cargo, being responsible for operations. Prior to that, the engineering graduate held various management positions at Lufthansa Technik.
