(PresseBox) (Berlin/Cologne, 17 January 2018) Since the beginning of the year, Dr. Rainer Heumann (42) strengthens and completes the management of the Zeitfracht aviation founded in autumn 2017.
„We are welcoming Dr. Heumann in our Zeitfracht team“, Wolfram Simon, managing director of the Zeitfracht Holding and the Zeitfracht Aviation Holding GmbH, states. „After over seven years at airberlin, with his experiences and expertise, Heumann can and will contribute to further expand and develop our business unit ‚aviation‘. In particular, he is going to concentrate on strategic partnerships in the field of passenger transport and the cargo sector”.
Besides Walter Böhnke, Heumann is a further managing director of the Zeitfracht subsidiary WDL Aviation based at Cologne/Bonn airport and along with Wolfram Simon managing director of the Zeitfracht Aviation Holding GmbH.
“The company is established and renowned. We want to continue growing and acquire new, modern aircrafts. With it, WDL is an important part of the aviation unit within the Zeitfracht group”, Heumann outlines his new area of responsibility.
After his studies and doctorate at the Institute of Auditing and in the research team Baetge at the Westphalian Wilhelms-University Münster, he switched to the Roland Berger Strategy Consultant GmbH in Düsseldorf. There, Heumann advised and took care of international projects, especially in the aviation industry. In 2010, he switched to airberlin technik as Vice President Finance and was accountable for the commercial department. Since 2015, as managing director of airberlin technik GmbH, Heumann managed the strategic reorientation of the company to a mere MRO service provider (Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul). Beyond his restructuring responsibilities at airberlin technik, Heumann was responsible for the management of the aircrafts rented by the Lufthansa Group.
