Chris is joined by Gerton Hulsman, MD of Düsseldorf Airport Cargo

Gerton – in charge of cargo operations at Düsseldorf Airport – tells Chris about his early interest in the police or military, and how he ended up instead at KLM, which was “like a university,” such was the opportunity to learn.

The pair also discuss the importance of passing knowledge down to the younger generation of aviation workers, why companies should invest in recessions, and what he plans for post-work life.
