Lufthansa Technik has newly filled two central management positions. Effective January 15, the former Head of Strategic Purchasing, Dr. Georg Fanta, has taken over the role of the new spokesman for the management of the Product Division (PD) Component Services. Dietmar Focke, former Managing Director of Lufthansa Technik Budapest, has assumed the role of spokesman in the management of PD Engines on February 1.

Georg Fanta succeeds Harald Gloy, who has moved to Lufthansa Cargo as Executive Board member. Fanta has been with Lufthansa Technik since2001 and has held numerous management positions in the company since then. Prior to his position in Strategic Purchasing, the industrial engineer and materials scientist worked in the areas of Base Maintenance and Controlling & Business Development, among others. For several years Fanta was also Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer at Spairliners GmbH, a joint venture of Lufthansa Technik and Air France Industries.

Dietmar Focke joined Lufthansa Technik 18 years ago as a Production Engineer in the Components Division, where he subsequently worked, among other things, as a consultant for Strategy and Business Segment Development. He later took over production management in the Airframe Related Components Division. At Ameco Beijing, a joint venture of Lufthansa and Air China, he was initially Head of Component and Landing Gear Maintenance and later Head of Aircraft Overhaul. He then took over Lufthansa Technik Budapest, one of the six current locations in Lufthansa Technik's base maintenance network. In the Engine Division he succeeds Bernhard Krueger-Sprengel, who is now responsible for the Lufthansa Group's Technical Fleet Management.
