Warwick Brady

Swissport International has appointed Warwick Brady as the company’s new president and chief executive.

Brady will replace Christoph Mueller, who assumed the chief executive on an interim basis after he was appointed to the board of directors of Swissport in December of last year.

Brady is currently the chief executive of Esken Limited, formerly Stobart Group, a British infrastructure, aviation and energy company with operations in the UK and Ireland.

His previous roles include the posts as chief executive of Mandala Airlines in Indonesia, chief operating officer at Air Deccan/Kingfisher in India and deputy operations director at Ryanair plc.

“With his industry experience and a proven track record in organizational transformation, digitalization and operational turnarounds, Warwick is the ideal CEO to steer Swissport safely, and drive it with real ambition, as the world and the aviation sector emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic,” said David Siegel, interim chairman of the board of directors of Swissport International.

“We expect the market recovery to present us with some challenges but also with significant strategic opportunities. I am confident that Warwick as chief executive and Christoph as our future chairman will take Swissport to the next level and position the company as the first-choice partner for airlines globally.”

Brady said: “I am excited, and honored to be asked to lead Swissport in such unprecedented times. There is some hard work ahead, but the potential of Swissport and the medium-term market outlook will certainly make this an exciting journey.

“We will leverage Swissport’s great legacy of providing airlines around the world with ground services and cargo handling that they can rely on with confidence. And we will speed up Swissport’s already ongoing transformation into a more agile, innovative and efficient organisation and business partner.”
