The 49-year-old industrial engineer has been chief operations officer since January 1, 2019. In his role, Harald Gloy was responsible for handling at the Frankfurt and Munich hubs as well as for Global Handling Management, Flight Operations, and Security.
Harald Gloy, chief operations and human resources officer at Lufthansa Cargo, resigns from the Executive Board of Lufthansa Cargo AG, effective from 28 February 2022 for personal reasons and will devote himself to new professional challenges outside the Lufthansa Group. A decision on a successor will be made in due course.
The 49-year-old industrial engineer has been chief operations officer since January 1, 2019. In his role, Harald Gloy was responsible for handling at the Frankfurt and Munich hubs as well as for Global Handling Management, Flight Operations, and Security. Since March 1, 2021, Gloy has also been responsible for human resources on the Executive Board and thus assumed the role of Labor Director.
“Harald Gloy has served more than 20 years and very successfully in various positions, first in the top management of Lufthansa Technik and since 2019 on the Executive Board of Lufthansa Cargo.”, said Dr Michael Niggemann, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Lufthansa Cargo AG and Chief Human Resources Officer of the Lufthansa Group. “With his extensive experience in aviation and logistics as well as in managing large business units, he has continued to lead Lufthansa Cargo towards the future as part of the Executive Board team and contributed to Lufthansa Cargo's current great economic success.”
Harald Gloy has driven forward the modernisation of Lufthansa Cargo over the past three years. This includes a comprehensive infrastructure programme, which includes the further development and renovation of the logistics centre at the home hub in Frankfurt. In addition, he was able to complete the fleet rollover to an all-B777 freighter fleet in Lufthansa Cargo's flight operations, which also fall within his remit. Finally, in his remaining term of office, he will implement the introduction of the first A321 freighter for Lufthansa Cargo in cooperation with Lufthansa Cityline.
He has also succeeded in decisively advancing the digital transformation in logistics. Improved data quality and the associated increase in the efficiency of processes now offer enormous opportunities to further develop and improve collaboration with all partners along the entire supply chain.
