Andres Diez will join Swissport as the new Director Global Commercial on 1 September 2021. He will drive the commercial function to deliver high customer-focused commercial solutions that will support our vision to be the best global aviation services business and the partner of choice for airlines around the world. With Andres Diez’s appointment, Swissport completes its global management team and new organizational setup.
“We are delighted to welcome Andres Diez as Director Global Commercial,” says Warwick Brady, President & CEO of Swissport International. “He brings many years of experience in key leadership roles for major logistics businesses where his efforts centered around business development and commercial strategies. With customer-centricity at the core of our agenda, Andres and his team around the Swissport network will be instrumental in delivering value to our customers, supported by commercial coordination and engagement across regions.”

He holds both a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering degree and an MBA from Florida International University (FIU) and recently completed a Master of Real Estate Finance degree from Georgetown University.
“Outsourcing of non-core ground services is a major cost savings opportunity for airlines as they seek to further increase operational efficiency following 18 months of market turmoil, government bailouts, and a still protracted market recovery,” says Warwick Brady. “With Swissport’s global network and broad service offering, we can tap significant economies of scale and stand ready as a dependable airline partner to help realize such savings.”
Just as importantly: when talking to airlines about their post-Covid plans, Swissport brings stability to the table. With the business under the new ownership of large investment funds and with its strong cash position, airlines and airport authorities at 269 airports in 47 countries can rely on Swissport as a strong partner for ramping-up.
