New heads for Swissport's Emea region
To further strengthen the Emea organisation and to better meet customer expectations with regard to air cargo handling and airport ground services, Swissport has appointed Rudolf Steiner as senior vice president cargo Europe, Middle East & Africa and Mark Skinner as senior vice president business development & sales Europe, Middle East & Africa. Both report to Luzius Wirth, executive vice president Emea.
The new set-up concludes a realignment of the Emea region, which is Swissport’s largest. The company recently introduced six sub-regions across Emea and is consolidating its overhead globally.
Steiner, formerly Swissport’s senior vice president and head of commercial Emea, is a recognised industry expert with over 20 years of experience in the air cargo business. Before joining Swissport in 2008, he held different senior positions at Swissair and Swisscargo.
Skinner, formerly senior vice president Middle East & Africa, most recently developed and managed Swissport’s principle emerging markets projects, with market entries and start up organisations in Saudi Arabia and Oman. (mw)
