Flughafen Munchen GmbH (FMG)/Munich Airport recently announced that its president and CEO Dr. Michael Kerkloh will retire at the end of 2019.
He has been in charge of the European hub for over 17 years.
To his credits are some of the major milestones that include the opening of Terminal 2 in 2003, the commissioning of the satellite terminal in 2016, and the decision to expand and upgrade Terminal 1.
He began his career in aviation at Frankfurt Airport in 1987, where he was responsible for operational planning and the organization of aircraft handling.

He then accepted the top job in Munich. Along with his role as president and CEO, he also serves as the labor director of FMG.

He was elected president of that body in 2017 and was re-elected in 2018. Dr. Kerkloh also served for six years as the president of the German Airports Association (ADV). He is a member of the executive committee of the German Aviation Industry Association and is the president of the Export-Club Bayern e. V., which promotes the interest of the Bavarian economy.
At a recent meeting, the FMG Supervisory Board agreed, with Dr. Kerkloh's consent, to begin the search for a suitable successor with the support of an executive recruitment consultancy.
Dr. Kerkloh will continue to hold office as the CEO of FMG until December 31, 2019.
