Appointment of Jean-Paul Gigleux as Executive Vice-President LuxairCARGO, Airport Services & Ground Equipment
Several decisions regarding the Executive Committee’s composition were made at today’s LuxairGroup Board of Directors Meeting.
Martin Isler, Executive Vice-President Airline, is due to retire from LuxairGroup in March 2020. He joined LuxairGroup in 2005 after having served Swiss International Airlines Ltd for over 20 years where he lastly filled the position of Executive Vice-President Network & Strategy.
From 1 July 2019, he will exclusively focus on his duties as Accountable Manager Airline and continue to lead the major in-house projects.
Martin Isler was the main driving force behind the repositioning of LuxairGroup’s airline business during the group’s “Building a New Airline” Turnaround project in 2006-07. This action plan was successful and enabled Luxair Luxembourg Airlines to develop its growth strategy, whilst keeping up with fierce and ever increasing competition.
The responsibility for the Luxair Luxembourg Airlines Business Unit will be handed over to Laurent Jossart on 1 July 2019.
Laurent Jossart joined LuxairGroup in 2006 as Executive Vice-President Finance and went on to become Executive Vice-President Cargo Handling in 2014. Before joining LuxairGroup, he worked for City Bird and Virgin Express and was appointed Managing Director of the Brussels South Charleroi Airport in 2002.
As of 1 July 2019, Jean-Paul Gigleux – appointed Executive Vice-President – will take over responsibility for the Cargo Handling in addition to the Airport Services and the Ground Equipment.
Jean-Paul Gigleux joined LuxairGroup in 2011 as Assistant Vice-President Catering and Ground Equipment after 15 years at FM Logistics where he filled, amongst others, the positions of Site Director and Director of Production and Logistics. In January 2016, Jean-Paul Gigleux was promoted to Vice-President Airport Services and Ground Equipment. He then accompanied the steady growth of Luxembourg airport, by optimising organisation to maintain LuxairGroup’s high standards in terms of quality as well as ensuring the safety, security and comfort of people and goods.
