Erdmann Rauer has been CEO of the LSG Group since October 2014. Already in 2011, he was appointed CSO of LSG Holding and assumed responsibility for LSG Sky Chefs’ worldwide Sales and Marketing, as well as the company’s Buy-on-Board and In-flight Retail activities. Erdmann was also the driver in partnering with (and later acquiring) onboard retail expert Retail inMotion back in 2013, demonstrating great entrepreneurial foresight at this time. He began his career at LSG Group in 2006 as Managing Director of equipment and logistics subsidiary SPIRIANT, where he initiated the globalization of the business by acquiring new international customers and expanding into Asia.
Erdmann Rauer clearly acts as a strategic thinker, always driving innovation. Part of his strategy are partnerships that expand and complement the expertise and innovative strength of the LSG Group, what goes hand in hand with his love for the WTCE. One can say that Erdmann Rauer has been a co-initiator for the creation of this trade show, which he supported with his personal presence ever since. He is also a founding member of the Airline Catering Association (ACA), which also backs the WTCE. Needless to say, when it was clear that the WTCE would return in 2022, Erdmann Rauer did not hesitate to confirm the LSG Group’s participation
