Changes to the executive board of Lufthansa Cargo planned for August 2018

Published: Tuesday, May 15, 2018

The position of Executive Board Member Product and Sales at Lufthansa Cargo AG is to be filled by Dorothea von Boxberg as of 1 August 2018. The 44-year-old manager will be succeeding Dr Alexis von Hoensbroech. He has been in charge of the Product and Sales division since December 2014 and is to become the new CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Austrian Airlines starting 1 August 2018. It will still be necessary for the respective supervisory boards to approve these proposals.

Von Boxberg is currently Vice President Global Sales Management at Lufthansa Cargo, with responsibility for areas including Global Performance Management, Pricing, Airmail, Product Management and Sales Processes. An experienced and adept manager from the company’s own ranks was thus able to be recruited as the successor.

‘I am pleased to propose to the Supervisory Board Dorothea von Boxberg as the successor to Alexis von Hoensbroech, who is currently serving as Chief Commercial Officer of Lufthansa Cargo. Her extensive management experience in strategy, product development and sales is an optimal prerequisite for this task’, says Harry Hohmeister, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Lufthansa Cargo.

As Lufthansa Cargo’s Chief Commercial Officer, Dorothea von Boxberg will be responsible for the external organisation of sales and handling, revenue management, pricing, network planning and sales management worldwide.

Ms von Boxberg studied industrial engineering at TU Berlin and ESCP/EAP Paris. From 1999 to 2005, she worked for consulting firm The Boston Consulting Group in Stuttgart, most recently as project manager. In 2005, Dorothea von Boxberg took a position at Star Alliance, where she was responsible for Alliance Development. She joined Deutsche Lufthansa AG in 2007 and headed the ‘Strategy and Investments’ division of Lufthansa Passage from 2009. Subsequently, she assumed several management positions in Product Management at Lufthansa Passage. In 2015, Ms von Boxberg transferred to Lufthansa Cargo and has headed Global Sales Management since then.
