After almost 16 years as Senior Vice President and Head of Lufthansa Group International Relations and Government Affairs, Thomas Kropp is handing over the responsibilities of his office to his successor Dr. Kay Lindemann as he retires after 24 years at the company.
Since 2002, Thomas Kropp and his teams in Frankfurt, Berlin, Brussels, Moscow and Beijing have developed the worldwide political and international relations of the ever-growing Lufthansa Group. The trained lawyer accompanied the transformation from a state-owned airline to the Lufthansa Group, Europe’s largest and most successful aviation group, and worked for the interests of the company at all political levels.
Dr. Kay Lindemann joined the Lufthansa Group at the beginning of the year. Dr. Lindemann holds a Doctorate in Law and was previously the Managing Director of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA).
