Chief Financial Officer Marcel Klaus has decided to leave Swiss International Air Lines after 12 years with the company.
Klaus, who is 51, intends to take a sabbatical before pursuing new professional goals. He will leave SWISS in July.
Marcel Klaus has extensive experience in both the airline and the financial sector. He began his career 20 years ago with the then Crossair in Basel, and has served SWISS in key executive financial capacities (including Head of Group Controlling) since its beginnings in 2001.
He played a vital role in its challenging corporate turnaround, and was appointed CFO in 2006 following the company’s acquisition by the Lufthansa Group.
“In Marcel Klaus we are losing a talented, experienced and highly-valued member of our top-management team,” adds CEO Harry Hohmeister. “Our company has a lot to thank Marcel for. We are very sorry to see him go; and we wish him every continued success and satisfaction, both professionally and personally, in the years ahead.”
Marcel Klaus will remain SWISS CFO until July. The Board of Directors will appoint his successor in the next few months.
