Thomas Klühr is to succeed Harry Hohmeister as CEO of SWISS in February 2016, as part of a broader realignment of the Lufthansa Group. The new group organisation is designed to provide a more functional alignment and thrust, along with flatter hierarchies. Harry Hohmeister, who is already a member of the Lufthansa Group Executive Board, will take charge of the newly-created position of Hub Management thereon in January 2016. The position of Chief Operating Officer Rainer Hiltebrand is to be integrated into the CEO’s remit. Hiltebrand will in future be responsible for developing the groupwide training of flying personnel.
