Maastricht Aachen Airport (MST) has appointed Jonas van Stekelenburg as interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
van Stekelenburg, a former Schiphol airport director, is said to deliver an ambitious Maastricht growth plan at the second-largest cargo hub in the Netherlands.
The airport's new holding company, NV HBLM, has made the change to drive MST's strategic goals of enhanced sustainability, digitalisation, and cargo and passenger development.
The announcement said van Stekelenburg brings extensive aviation expertise to the role, having already provided advisory services to MST's management and supervisory board. He has also held various positions between 2002 to 2018 at the Royal Schiphol Group.
"Our strategy is focused on delivering a resilient, sustainable, and environmentally conscious airport for the local community and its future," said van Stekelenburg, CEO of Maastricht Aachen Airport.
"Moving forward, we are dedicated to furthering the sustainable evolution of MST’s operations and advancing both our passenger and cargo services."
The statement noted that changes come as part of a strategic initiative following the joint investment commitment of the Provincial Council of Limburg and the Royal Schiphol Group.
van Stekelenburg will assume the role of CEO from September for an initial term of nine months.
