For Breithaupt, the new role is the fourth Group subsidiary in his career, having joined Lufthansa Group back in 2001, initially with Lufthansa Technik, before moving on to the mother ship, Lufthansa Passenger, and from there to Lufthansa Cargo in 2010.

I am honored to take on this role and look forward to leading Jettainer into its next phase of innovation and excellence.
