Alexander Kohnen has been appointed the new Managing Director Strategy & Sales at time:matters Holding GmbH, effective 15 November 2017. The 40-year-old thereby succeeds Franz-Joseph Miller, who left the company of his own accord on 1 July 2017. Kohnen has held various management positions at Lufthansa Cargo since October 2000, most recently Senior Director Industry Development & Product Management and previously Director Nordic & Baltic Countries.
“We are delighted to have Alexander Kohnen on board. He knows the industry inside out and has everything it takes to further establish time:matters as the leading specialist for sameday delivery and emergency logistics,” said Dr Alexis von Hoensbroech, Board Member Product & Sales at Lufthansa Cargo.
Lufthansa Cargo took complete ownership of the time:matters group, which specializes in global special speed and time-critical international spare part logistics, in August 2016. The cargo airline, which spun off time:matters as a subsidiary in 2002, had held a 49 per cent share prior to that. Christian Mörtl, previously Head of Aircraft Handling at Lufthansa Cargo, was appointed Managing Director Operations & Finance at time:matters Holding GmbH on 1 August 2016.
