Swissport has appointed Dave Lynch as Group Chief Information Officer and member of the Executive Leadership Team.

He succeeds Giuseppe Genovesi, who stepped down from his position in July. Lynch joins Swissport from FirstGroup, a leading private sector provider of public transport in the UK, and will report to Warwick Brady, President & CEO of Swissport.

“We are delighted to announce Dave Lynch as our new Group CIO," says Warwick Brady, President & CEO of Swissport International AG. “With his vast experience, Dave has what it takes to bring Swissport to the next level of process integration and digitisation, supporting a further enhanced service delivery."

At FirstGroup Plc, Lynch served as Group CIO since 2014. In this role, he drove an ambitious IT transformation and digitisation agenda and positioned FirstGroup Plc to exploit the business opportunities presented by digital transformation. Prior to that, Dave Lynch worked at the Go-Ahead Group Plc, first as Group Technology Director and then as Group Technology and Procurement Director.

Brady, in thanking Peter Billiau for his contributions as interim CIO since July, says: "Peter hit the ground running and has been leading Group IT as a very effective and inspirational CIO. He has energised the team and led them to go above and beyond to support Swissport's goal of being the digital leader in aviation services.”
