Ireland looks to Aer Lingus chief for help on turning postal round

Aer Lingus chief executive Christoph Mueller has obviously been impressing the Irish Government with his turnaround skills, as they are looking to tap his expertise to help turnaround the state-owned Irish postal service An Post as well.Mueller Lingus.jpg


Mueller has returned Aer Lingus to profit after embarking on a major turnaround after joining amid spiralling losses in 2009. Now Irish communications minister Pat Rabbitte has turned to Mueller to chair the An Post board at what he calls “a critical time” for the company. The company will benefit from the strategic leadership approach that Christoph Mueller has brought to Aer Lingus,” he says.

The role, which does not effect his Aer Lingus position, underlines the value the Irish Government see in Mueller’s ability to turn around companies. It is also familiar ground for Mueller as he was previously CFO at DHL and served on the executive committee of Deutsche Post.
