Philip Rauchhaus is LCAG’s new DACH & KAM EMEA Head

Philip Rauchhaus succeeds Achim Martinka as Head of Region HACH & KAM EMEA. Martinka had previously left Lufthansa Cargo on his own volition on 31OCT23. The press release states Rauchhaus’ official start as “the next possible date” an interesting formulation for a position that has already been vacant for almost three months. As they say in German, it would appear that “Gut Ding braucht Weil.” [“The best things come to those who wait”, would be a rough match in English.] Rauchhaus, who until now has held the position of Head of Sales Frankfurt, will then be responsible for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, plus act as key account management for the regions of Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The European, Middle East and Africa sales regions will remain under the management of Oliver von Goetz and Dr. André Schulz, respectively.

Rauchhaus, who holds a degree in business administration, has been with Lufthansa Cargo since 2009, and has seen a rapid ascension on the career ladder. Starting out in sales, he soon took over the position of Head of Handling, Process and Quality Management Germany. Head of Revenue Management was his next post in 2014, after which he became Senior Director Market and Network Planning in 2017. He has held his current position of Senior Director Sales Frankfurt since 2022. Though he delivered no formal statement, his LinkedIn page has been full of well wishers and it is clear that he is delighted with the promotion.

Ashwin Bhat, CEO of Lufthansa Cargo, announced: “With Philip Rauchhaus, we are delighted to have gained an experienced manager for this position who knows the air freight industry inside out. Thanks to his expertise within the company and the experience he brings with him, he will provide new impulses in the marketing of our airfreight capacities and the cooperation with our customers, especially in our home market.”
