Lorenzo Stoll

Lorenzo Stoll has been appointed as the new head of Swiss WorldCargo.

He will assume his new function on April 1 and he succeeds Ashwin Bhat, who will take up new duties as chief commercial officer of Lufthansa Cargo from next month.

Stoll is currently Swiss’s head of western Switzerland, with responsibility for its Geneva business and operations. The search for his successor to oversee the key Geneva market is already under way.

“With his wide experience in the consumer goods segment, his innovative flair and his keen focus on the customer, Lorenzo Stoll has further enhanced product and service quality,” the carrier said.

“I am really pleased that, in Lorenzo Stoll, we have appointed such a skilled and seasoned expert from our own ranks,” said Swiss chief financial officer Markus Binkert. “Stoll has been instrumental in ensuring our success in Geneva and our positioning as a premium carrier.

“I’m convinced that, with his wide experience in the commercial, the consumer goods and the aviation fields, he will be just as effective in further developing our air cargo division. And I wish him every success and satisfaction in his new capacity.”

Stoll came to Swiss from Nestlé, where he had spent the previous 12 years serving in international management positions within various corporate divisions in Vevey, Frankfurt and Paris.
