April 12, 2018: Dorothea von Boxberg is set to take charge as the executive board member product and sales, at Lufthansa Cargo AG from August onwards. The 44-year-old manager will be succeeding 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 are an optimal prerequisite for this task,” said 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.
von Boxberg 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, von Boxberg got transferred to Lufthansa Cargo and has headed global sales management since then.
