Nov 4, 2019: Swissport has appointed Rudolf Steiner as senior vice president Cargo Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) and Mark Skinner as senior vice president Business Development & Sales Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA).
Rudolf Steiner comes to the new role with over 20 years of experience in the air cargo business. He, prior to this role, held the role of senior vice president and head of Commercial EMEA at Swissport. In his new role, he will coordinate and manage the EMEA Cargo business jointly with the regional and local management.
Mark Skinner, formerly SVP Middle East & Africa, most recently developed and managed Swissport’s principle emerging markets projects, with successful market entries and green field start up organizations in Saudi Arabia and in Oman.
In his new assignment he will drive business development projects across the EMEA region and be responsible for customer relations (except cargo) and will guide the commercial teams in executing the sales strategy. Mark joined Swissport in 2004. He previously held senior positions at Credit Suisse and Swissair.
The new setup concludes a realignment of the EMEA region, which is Swissport’s largest. The company recently introduced six sub-regions across EMEA and is consolidating its overhead globally.
“A dedicated leadership team for Air Cargo Handling and Ground Services, will enable us to build even stronger client relationships,” says Luzius Wirth, EVP EMEA of Swissport International AG.
They both assumed their new roles on November 1, 2019.
