Munich Airport appoints new president and CEO

Munich Airport has announced that its supervisory board has appointed Jost Lammers as the airport’s next president and CEO, effective as of January 1, 2020.

Lammers, currently the CEO of Budapest Airport, will join for a five-year term, replacing Dr Michael Kerkloh, who is set to retire after leading the Munich Airport Group for 17 years.

“As the CEO in Budapest, Mr. Lammers has guided that airport through an impressive period of growth and development,” said Albert Füracker, the Bavarian minister of finance and the chairman of the FMG Supervisory Board.

“We have therefore selected a candidate whose experience, skills, personality and age make him the ideal choice to lead Bavaria’s Gateway to the World into the future and successfully master the many challenges that lie ahead.”

Lammers’ previous roles include CEO of Flughafen Düsseldorf Ground Handling GmbH, asset manager for Düsseldorf Airport with Hochtief AirPort GmbH, and project manager for Athens Airport.

He was also recently elected president of Airports Council International Europe (ACI Europe) and also sits on the supervisory board of Hamburg Airport.

He will join Thomas Weyer (CFO and Director of Infrastructure) and Andrea Gebbeken (Managing Director: Commercial and Security) who make up the rest of Munich Airport’s new Management Board.
