The Supervisory Board of Flughafen München GmbH (FMG), the Munich Airport operating company, has selected Jost Lammers as the airport’s next president and CEO. Lammers has been appointed for a five-year term effective as of January 1, 2020. He will succeed Dr. Michael Kerkloh, who is to retire on December 31, 2019 after leading the FMG Group very successfully for more than 17 years.
Albert Füracker, the Bavarian minister of finance and the chairman of the FMG Supervisory Board, sees Jost Lammers as an “excellent choice”: “As the CEO in Budapest, Mr. Lammers has guided that airport through an impressive period of growth and development. We have therefore selected a candidate whose experience, skills, personality and age make him the ideal choice to lead Bavaria’s Gateway to the World into the future and successfully master the many challenges that lie ahead.”
Jost Lammers, Thomas Weyer (CFO and Director of Infrastructure) and Andrea Gebbeken (Managing Director: Commercial and Security) will make up Munich Airport’s new Management Board.
