Lithuanian Airports have a new Executive Director. On 12 June, Laura Joffė started her new job as Executive Director of Lithuanian Airports, the company uniting all three Lithuanian airports. Notably, Laura Joffė has worked for the company in the past. Over the course of her professional career, Laura Joffė gathered many years of experience working for companies in a variety of sectors. Therefore, there is no doubt that her move to Lithuanian Airports will strengthen the company’s team and help it achieve the goals set.

“We are incredibly happy to welcome Laura to our team. She is an expert with such comprehensive professional experience. We have set ambitious goals for further growth of flight and passenger numbers in all three Lithuanian airports and strive to offer even faster and more convenient services to our customers. Additionally, the company might change its status from state enterprise to public limited liability company by the end of this year or early next year.

These goals can only be implemented with the help of a professional and enthusiastic team that is ready to face challenges. Laura Joffė has all of these key qualities. Moreover, she has worked for Lithuanian Airports before, which is clearly an advantage,” believes CEO of Lithuanian Airports Marius Gelžinis.

“It has now become popular to talk about changes, their impact on the organisation and how they benefit both the company’s employees and shareholders. However, the most important thing is often left unsaid. You have to be ready for these changes. Lithuanian Airports constantly implement changes and are not planning to stop. This is why I want to be a part of this team and implement changes together,” says the new Executive Director of Lithuanian Airports.

Recently, Laura Joffė has also been chairing the audit committee of “Vilniaus vandenys”. In 2014-2016, Laura worked for Lithuanian Airports first as the Head of Internal Control Department and then as Head of Finance Department. The current Executive Director previously held the post of the Head of Finance and Administration Department of book publisher “Balto Print” and worked for companies like “Mažeikių nafta”, “DFDS”, “Klaipėdos baldai”, “SBA Baldų kompanija”, and “Avion Express”.
