Neumann appointed head of Lufthansa Systems Hungária
Stephan Neumann replaced Michael Herrmann as managing director of Lufthansa Systems Hungária on May 1, the company told the Budapest Business Journal.
"While both the weaknesses and strengths of companies have been amplified by the pandemic crisis, strengths can and should be built on even in volatile times like the current one," says the company's newly appointed managing director. Neumann believes that the Hungarian subsidiary should seize the opportunity to be the engine of transformation.
Neumann's aim is not only to strengthen the company's role within the international group: he also wants the Hungarian subsidiary to provide Lufthansa Systems with as much support as possible to become a major player in the global IT market. The main focus will be on joint IT development and application operation in cooperation with Capture GmbH, an Austrian-Hungarian software company that has been a strategic partner of the Hungarian company for a decade.
Neumann joined Lufthansa Systems in January 2000, with many years of industry experience in airline navigation products and a successful pilot training. At Lufthansa, he held positions as team and group manager in sales, customer relations, and later project and customer. Since 2017, he has been responsible for the operational management of the international group's product management area, and in this capacity, he has already established close cooperation with the team in Hungary, the company notes.
The retiring Herrmann acted as managing director of Lufthansa Systems Hungária from July 2018. Over the course of his career, he worked in various management positions at the Lufthansa Group for more than three decades.
