Swissport International AG has appointed Warwick Brady as President & CEO. He will succeed Christoph Mueller, who has been acting as the interim CEO since 1 January 2021. Christoph Mueller will become Chairman of the Board of Directors once Warwick Brady assumes the CEO role in Spring 2021.
The Board of Directors of Swissport International AG has appointed Warwick Brady as the company’s new President & CEO. He will replace Christoph Mueller, who assumed the CEO role ad-interim after he was appointed to the Board of Directors of Swissport in December of last year. Mr. Brady will also join the Board of Directors of the company.
Warwick Brady is currently the CEO of Esken Limited, formerly Stobart Group, a British infrastructure, aviation and energy company with operations in the UK and Ireland. He has transformed Esken from a conglomerate into a business focused on Aviation (airports, aviation services, regional airline) and Renewable Energy. As part of the restructuring, he successfully executed on M&A, operational turnarounds, complex financing and the strategic re-focusing of the business. Prior to his CEO role at Esken, he was Chief Operating Officer at EasyJet for nearly eight years and was part of the leadership team that transformed the airline into a FTSE 100 business.
“With his industry experience and a proven track record in organizational transformation, digitalization and operational turnarounds, Warwick is the ideal CEO to steer Swissport safely, and drive it with real ambition, as the world and the aviation sector emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic,” says David Siegel, interim Chairman of the Board of Directors of Swissport International AG. “We expect the market recovery to present us with some challenges but also with significant strategic opportunities. I am confident that Warwick as CEO and Christoph as our future Chairman will take Swissport to the next level and position the company as the first-choice partner for airlines globally.”
