Today Andreas Ungar has his first working day as the new managing director of Mönchengladbach Airport (MGL). This completes the management team, along with managing director Ulrich Schückhaus and authorized signatory David Bongartz.
Ungar succeeds Franz-Josef Kames, who retired at the end of March. When the contract was signed in June of this year, he said: “I am looking forward to my new, exciting task in Mönchengladbach. With its proven business fields, the MGL airfield is well positioned as a training, maintenance and event location. " At the same time, due to its excellent infrastructure and high flexibility, the MGL has enormous potential to drive pioneering developments in aviation and to become even more attractive for general aviation.
"That is exactly what we will now tackle together and with verve - to further develop the airport as a driver of innovation and growth for Mönchengladbach," adds Schückhaus. He is happy to have an experienced manager and proven airport expert at his side. Ungar will be responsible for the airport's operational business and will initially be appointed to this position for five years, as in other municipal companies. The man in his mid-thirties was previously operations manager and managing director of the security services at Münster / Osnabrück Airport and also worked for many years as technical manager, traffic manager and authorized signatory in a responsible position at Rostock-Laage Airport.
