Lufthansa strengthens Lufthansa German Airlines Board
Peter Gerber to take over newly created human resources and infrastructure services division on the Airlines Board, effective 1 June
Effective 1 June 2012, the Lufthansa German Airlines Board, headed by CEO Carsten Spohr (45), is to be expanded with a newly created Human Resources and Infrastructure Services Division. The new division will be headed by Peter Gerber (48), who is moving to Lufthansa German Airlines from the Executive Board of Lufthansa Cargo AG.
The realignment reflects the growing political and strategic importance of human resources and labour relations policy in the Lufthansa passenger business. It is additionally intended to underline the importance of infrastructure providers and services for the airline. Moreover, the exercise of responsibility for human resources and infrastructure services as well as for finance and information management in two own divisions will increase the autonomy of Lufthansa German Airlines within the Lufthansa Group.
Peter Gerber began his career at Lufthansa in the human resources area and legal department in 1992. From December 2004 to May 2009, he was in charge of corporate industrial relations and social security at the Lufthansa Group. Since 1 June 2009, he has been responsible for Finance and Human Resources on the Executive Board of Lufthansa Cargo AG.
In line with the strengthening of the Lufthansa German Airlines Board, the previous Finance and Human Resources Division headed by Dr. Roland Busch (48) will take over responsibility for the Business Development area and be renamed ”Finance and Information Management“.
