SWISS head of cargo Lorenzo Stoll to leave the company

Lorenzo Stoll, as Head of Cargo at Swiss International Air Lines

Lorenzo Stoll, Head of Cargo at Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS), has decided to leave the company at the end of July 2024 after 11 years.

Stoll, who presently heads SWISS’s Swiss WorldCargo division, will be taking on a new professional challenge as the CEO of a Swiss-based healthcare company.

As Head of Cargo, Lorenzo Stoll has successfully guided SWISS’s airfreight division through highly challenging times over the past three years – during the COVID-19 crisis in particular, when Stoll and his Swiss WorldCargo team effectively ensured that Switzerland remained provided by air with various vital supplies.

Lorenzo Stoll joined SWISS in 2013, initially as the company’s Head of Western Switzerland.

In this capacity he oversaw the turnaround of SWISS’s Geneva-based business and operations, bringing earnings back into the black and creating over 200 new local positions.

Markus Binkert, SWISS Chief Financial Officer says: “With his innovative flair and his keen customer focus, Lorenzo Stoll has had a huge and lasting impact on both our Geneva operations and our Swiss WorldCargo division.

“He was also instrumental in ensuring during the COVID pandemic that, at a time of low passenger numbers, Swiss WorldCargo made a vital contribution to our revenue results.”

“At the same time,” Binkert continues, “Sustainability has always been one of Lorenzo’s prime focuses and concerns.

“And it’s thanks to him and his Swiss WorldCargo team that our SWISS airfreight business is so well equipped and prepared today for the challenges of tomorrow.

“With his vision and his perspective, Lorenzo has set key processes in motion within our airfreight organization that will enable even greater and more permanent use to be made of the various cargo synergies within the Lufthansa Group.

“I offer Lorenzo my deepest thanks for all his energies and endeavours on behalf of our company, and I wish him every further success and satisfaction in his new challenges ahead.”

The search for SWISS’s new Head of Cargo is already under way.
