Uwe Mukrasch (50), who has been a member of the Lufthansa Technik Executive Board with responsibility for Human Resources and Information since January 2007, has asked the Lufthansa Technik Supervisory Board to release him from his contract early so he can pursue other career interests.
Stephan Gemkow, Chairman of the Lufthansa Technik Supervisory Board, said: "With the departure of Uwe Mukrasch we are losing an excellent manager who has made a valuable contribution to Lufthansa Technik during his 20 years with the company. The Supervisory Board and the entire company would like to express their gratitude to him for that.
As a member of the Executive Board and as Labour Director he has, in particular, successfully developed the Human Resources division while fostering a constructive dialogue with the Works Council and the trade unions, and has thus further increased the success of the Lufthansa Technik Group."
The Supervisory Board will announce a successor to Uwe Mukrasch shortly.
