Effective June 1st, 2015, the management team of Germany’s second largest airline will have a new line-up: Julio Rodriguez has been appointed the Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), taking over responsibility for Sales, Revenue Management and E-Commerce – a centrepiece of airberlin’s restructuring. Rodriguez is currently the CCO of the Spanish low-cost airline Vueling. Captain Oliver Lackmann, previously Accountable Manager, was appointed to the newly created position of Chief Flight Operations Officer (CFOO), and is responsible for flight operations, crew planning and training, as well as Operations Compliance & Safety Management and Aviation Security Management. Marco Ciomperlik was appointed to the newly created position of Chief Production Officer (CPO) and will focus on hospitality, including future product strategy, and operations along the entire service chain. This includes mainly Airport Operations, Cabin Crew, Guest Experience, Maintenance and Network Operations. The expanded management team will be complemented by Ole Orvér, the new Senior Vice President of Network Strategy Planning, who until further notice will report directly to the CEO. Orvér was most recently Senior Vice President Corporate Planning at Qatar Airways, and previously held various management positions at LOT Polish Airlines and the SAS Group.
