Alexis von Hoensbroech, currently chief commercial officer (CCO) of Lufthansa Cargo, is to become the new chairman of the Executive Board of Austrian Airlines. Taking over the reigns of Lufthansa Cargo will be Dorothea von Boxberg, who is to become the new executive board member Product and Sales (CCO) at Lufthansa Cargo following approval of the Supervisory Board.
The position of executive board member Product and Sales at Lufthansa Cargo is to be filled by Dorothea von Boxberg as of 1 August 2018. Von Hoensbroech has been in charge of the Product and Sales division since December 2014 and is to become the new CEO and chairman of the Executive Board of Austrian Airlines starting 1 August 2018.
Von Boxberg is currently vice president Global Sales Management at Lufthansa Cargo, with responsibility for areas including Global Performance Management, Pricing, Airmail, Product Management and Sales Processes. An experienced and adept manager from the company’s own ranks was thus able to be recruited as the successor, Lufthansa Cargo said.
“I am pleased to propose to the Supervisory Board Dorothea von Boxberg as the successor to Alexis von Hoensbroech, who is currently serving as chief commercial officer of Lufthansa Cargo. Her extensive management experience in strategy, product development and sales is an optimal prerequisite for this task”, says Harry Hohmeister, chairman of the Supervisory Board of Lufthansa Cargo.
As Lufthansa Cargo’s CCO, Dorothea von Boxberg will be responsible for the external organisation of sales and handling, revenue management, pricing, network planning and sales management worldwide.
Ms von Boxberg studied industrial engineering at TU Berlin and ESCP/EAP Paris. From 1999 to 2005, she worked for consulting firm The Boston Consulting Group in Stuttgart, most recently as project manager. In 2005, Dorothea von Boxberg took a position at Star Alliance, where she was responsible for Alliance Development.
She joined Deutsche Lufthansa AG in 2007 and headed the Strategy and Investments division of Lufthansa Passage from 2009. Subsequently, she assumed several management positions in Product Management at Lufthansa Passage. In 2015, Ms von Boxberg transferred to Lufthansa Cargo and has headed Global Sales Management since then.
The changes are pending approval of the respective supervisory boards.
