Henning Dieter has been appointed Head of Swissport Cargo Services Germany & Austria and will assume his position on 1 September 2020. He succeeds Dirk Schmitt, who left the company after almost five years at the helm of Swissport Cargo in Germany and Austria.

On 1 September 2020, Henning Dieter will assume his role as the Head of Swissport Cargo Services Germany & Austria. He succeeds Dirk Schmitt who left the company in December 2019 after heading the Swissport Cargo operation in Germany and Austria since February 2015. Since his departure, Andrea Führing, CFO of Swissport Cargo Germany, has been successfully leading the organization on an interim basis.

Henning Dieter will oversee the strategic and operational management of Swissport’s 13 cargo warehouses in the two countries, the largest of which are in Frankfurt, Munich and Stuttgart. Initially, his focus will be on steering the organization through the coronavirus related business recovery. The completion of the new Swissport warehouse at Frankfurt airport, scheduled to go into operation in November 2020, will be another major event. Henning Dieter will report to Willy Ruf, Senior Vice President Central & Eastern Europe.

“We are pleased to welcome Henning Dieter as the new Head of Swissport Cargo Services Germany & Austria,” says Willy Ruf, Senior Vice President Central & Eastern Europe of Swissport International AG. “He can build on many years of relevant professional experience in cargo supply chain management and in the aviation industry in general. While his biggest challenge will initially be to safely steer our business through the recovery phase of the current market crisis, we hope to soon turn our focus on further optimizing the airfreight supply chain.”
