Published: Monday, July 31, 2023

Leipzig, Germany—Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG (MFAG) has reorganized and restructured its sales operations. Kira Fabiunke and Steffen Böttger took over the “Sales Airlines” and the “Sales Cargo” departments on 1 July.

Both of them will report to Frank Pieper, who himself took over the leadership of the “Business Development and Strategy” division on 1 April this year.

Kira will be responsible for the “Sales Airlines” department as its manager. Steffen is taking over the management responsibility in the “Sales Cargo” department. Both of them have proven sales and airline expertise and formerly worked for Air Berlin or Lufthansa: Kira can look back on 15 years of sales work and many years of experience in domestic and international business travel and airline sales work.

Steffen worked until recently as the “Head of Customer Service” at PortGround, thus, has broad operating experience in freight handling too. Prior to this, he spent many years working in sales and key account management at Boeing and Lufthansa, both of which are companies with international operations.

Frank, the Head of the Business Development & Strategy division, underlines the importance of this development. “I’m convinced that this new personnel restructuring process will bring a breath of fresh air to our operations, which is what we need to be successful in the long term. We’ll continue to work hard and focus on our strengths in order to offer our customers the best possible services. I’d like to thank all those involved on the Executive Board, in the personnel department and particularly at PortGround, who have supported this development in a very constructive and cooperative manner.”
