GUEST OF THE DAY

Lars Ottmer
Head of controlling, SWISS International Airlines, 13th place PROUT EXECUTIVES 2021

Lars has worked in various positions at SWISS International Airlines and its parent Lufthansa Group since 2000. At the moment, he is the Head of Controlling at SWISS, and before that he held senior positions in HR, leadership development, market and fleet strategy within the Group. He has twice acutely fought for the survival of SWISS during this time, most recently because of the Corona pandemic.

Within the Group, Lars is committed to the LGBT*IQ community and open interaction. For example, he helped SWISS take a barely veiled stand in the ‚Äúmarriage for all‚ÄĚ referendum in Switzerland, and in his younger years he was also a political activist, including as a member of the city of Zurich‚Äôs parliament. In his wild party years, he was also a co-organizer of the Zurich ‚ÄúStreet Parade‚ÄĚ.
