FRANKFURT (Dow Jones) – Lufthansa board member Thorsten Dirks resigns. Dirks took the successful completion of the state stabilization measure as an opportunity to withdraw from the company’s Executive Board, said Deutsche Lufthansa AG. No further details of the reasons were given.
Dirks was appointed to the board in May 2017. At the end of 2019, he gave up responsibility for the group airline Eurowings and took over the newly founded IT, Digital & Innovation department. After the departure of the former CFO Ulrik Svensson in April, significant parts of the finance department were added and Dirk’s area was renamed “Digital and Finance”. The Executive Board chairman, Carsten Spohr, will take over this executive board position temporarily until further notice.
