Lufthansa Cargo has announced that chief operations and human resources officer Harald Gloy will leave the company’s executive board on 28 February 2022 “for personal reasons”.
Gloy has served as chief operations officer since 1 January 2019 with responsibility for handling at Lufthansa Cargo’s Frankfurt and Munich hubs as well as for global handling management, flight operations and security.
He took on human resources responsibilities on the board on 1 March this year, assuming the role of labour director.
After February, Gloy will take on new professional challenges outside the Lufthansa Group.
“Harald Gloy has served more than 20 years and very successfully in various positions, first in the top management of Lufthansa Technik and since 2019 on the executive board of Lufthansa Cargo,” said Lufthansa Cargo’s chairman of the supervisory board and Lufthansa Group’s chief human resources officer Dr Michael Niggemann.
“With his extensive experience in aviation and logistics as well as in managing large business units, he has continued to lead Lufthansa Cargo towards the future as part of the executive board team and contributed to Lufthansa Cargo’s current great economic success.”
Lufthansa Cargo credited Gloy with driving forward modernisation of the company over the past three years, including an infrastructure programme featuring further development and renovation of the logistics centre at its home hub in Frankfurt. He also guided the transition to an all 777 freighter fleet in flight operations. In his remaining term of office, Lufthansa Cargo said he would implement the introduction of the company’s first A321 freighter in cooperation with Lufthansa Cityline.
A decision on a successor will be made in due course, Lufthansa Cargo said.
