Aug 28, 2018: HNA Group and Eric Born have agreed to extend Born’s contract as group president & CEO of Swissport International AG till December 31, 2019. This comes in accordance with his announcement, later this year, for stepping down by the end of December 2018.
“Given Eric’s outstanding leadership, his understanding of the airport ground services and air cargo handling industry, and his clear vision for Swissport’s future, the company will be best served by his continued leadership as HNA evaluates the strategic options for its Swiss subsidiary,” said Adam Tan, CEO of HNA Group.
Born has been serving as the President & CEO of the world leader in ground handling and air cargo services since August 2015. He has a strong track record and vast experience in creating value in private equity owned and publicly listed organisations across retail, logistics and aviation services. During his tenure, Swissport further extended its global leadership and saw its profitability strengthened.
