Chief Cargo Officer Oliver Evans to step down in September 2015

10/12/2014

Oliver Evans, SWISS’s Chief Cargo Officer of the airline’s Swiss WorldCargo division, is to relinquish his post at the end of September 2015 at his own request in order to pursue self-employment in the air logistics industry on his way into retirement.

Oliver Evans has been with SWISS since the end of 2002 when he was appointed Chief Cargo Officer. During his tenure, he has been instrumental in realigning SWISS’s airfreight division to specialize in high-value and care-intensive consignments for the industry and pharmaceuticals sectors. SWISS’s air cargo activities make a major contribution to the company’s present business success.

“In Oliver Evans we are losing a successful executive and a greatly-valued colleague,” says SWISS CEO Harry Hohmeister. “We will be very sorry to see him go; but we also appreciate that, after so many years in his current capacity, he is now seeking a new professional challenge.” The search for his successor is already under way.
