Oliver Schmitt will join the Executive Board of Eurowings on March 1, 2020 and become the new Chief Commercial Officer of the German airline.

Schmitt is currently Vice President Sales at Eurowings and Managing Director of Eurowings Digital. He will continue his work as Managing Director in a dual role going forward. In becoming CCO, he succeeds Oliver Wagner, who moved to the Executive Board of Lufthansa AirPlus Servicekarten as Chairman on January 1, this year.

“I am very pleased that with Oliver Schmitt we have been able to appoint a Managing Director and Chief Commercial Officer from our own ranks,” said Thorsten Dirks, CEO of Eurowings. “In recent years, Oliver Schmitt has provided enormously important impulses in the area of digitalisation, pushed the development of new sales structures and, together with his team, achieved considerable sales successes.”

Dirks continued: “I am convinced that he will consistently pursue this path in his new responsibility – in the best interests of our customers, to whom we want to offer even better digital services and tailor-made products along the entire travel chain in the future.”

Designated CEO Jens Bischof, who will start at Eurowings on March 2020, also comments. “Oliver Schmitt is a tremendous asset for Eurowings with his digital mindset and many innovative sales ideas. He will dynamically develop the commercial sector and consistently place 28m Eurowings customers at the focus of our work.”
