Thorsten Pook’s career started as a logistics apprentice, which began in Germany. In 1995, he began his international career in Hong Kong as a trainee. He gained more international experience in India, Singapore, Qatar, Egypt, Turkey and since 2016, now resides in the UAE.

“Whatever little time left when working in the logistics industry is spend with the family. I enjoy scuba diving with my daughters and I recently also fulfilled a dream of mine in owning a classic car,” he told Air Cargo Update.

Pook loves to unwind by going for a walk with his dog or go on a long drive.

His favorite quote is by the late American business magnate, industrial designer, media proprietor and investor Steve Jobs, who was also the co-founder, chairman and CEO of Apple.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life,” (Steve Jobs).

Referring to his earlier statement from his favorite quote, he referred ‘connecting the dots’ as “I am happy to have chosen the logistic industry. There were other plans of becoming a Brewmaster”.

Looking forward to 2022, Pook stated, “I am always positive that 2022 will bring many good things, while we have to be ready to face the challenges that might come along our way. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is to be agile and flexible to quickly adjust to new situations. It is important that we always remember that we are a large global community and do not forget the key foundations of our work; bringing together different people in different parts of the world”.

Pook is married and has two
