The appointment of Thorsten Riekert to Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) is an integral part of Jettainer’s strategic reorganisation. This new organisation emphasizes the company’s commitment to customer-centricity, future readiness and market leadership. The first measure was to setup a structure with General Managers designed to facilitate direct customer relationships in the regions, respond to their specific needs and oversee both sales and operational activities. General Managers in the Americas and the Middle East & Africa region have already been established, APAC and Europe are set to follow. The new CCO setup with Riekert in charge will further enhance Jettainer’s operational efficiency and ensure that regional activies are closely aligned with the company’s commercial strategy. In addition, Riekert will continue to drive the development of Jettainer’s flagship ULD management solution “ULD Select”.

“Thorsten Riekert has played a central role in Jettainer’s management team, demonstrating outstanding commitment and profound aviation and market knowledge”, remarked Thomas Sonntag, CEO of Jettainer. “His contributions have significantly enriched our global network and product portfolio. In his new role as CCO, his expertise will be of high value as we continue to expand our presence and strengthen our market position.”

Thorsten Riekert joined Jettainer in 2015. In his time with the company, he played a pivotal role in expanding Jettainer’s extensive customer network and product offer of market-leading ULD management solutions. Before joining Jettainer, he held various impactful positions within the Lufthansa Group, where he strengthened his skills and expertise in sales and management.
