Karl-Ludwig Kley, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, thanks Thorsten Dirks for his work on the Executive Board: "After joining the Executive Board, Thorsten Dirks initially led Eurowings through a difficult phase, while at the same time placing important accents on IT and digitalization, and most recently taking over key areas of the finance department at short notice. Without exception, the topics he was confronted with were difficult and challenging. On behalf of the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board, I would like to express our deep gratitude for his work.”
