Asstra prepares succession
Sven Matthes joined the Asstra-Associated Traffic international corporate group as deputy chief executive officer and chief commercial officer in July 2021. He is now responsible for Asstra’s commercial strategy and growth, overseeing the group’s sales and marketing, tender management, and business development processes.
Matthes started his logistics career at Lufthansa and then DB Schenker, where he advanced to a leadership role with the company’s European global project business unit.
Dmitry Lagun, Asstra's current CEO, expressed his satisfaction with this appointment: “Over the last seven years, I have had the honour of being both chairman of the board of directors and CEO at Asstra. This year, the board decided to begin the successor programme and transition the CEO role to Sven Matthes. I am happy to be passing this role into such capable hands.” (cd)
