Chris Notter talks to Gerold Tumulka, CEO Middle East (Swissport)

This episode we have Gerold Tumulka, CEO Middle East of Swissport. We have much in common, both ex Lufthansa and both residing in Saudi Arabia. Gerold has immersed himself in the Kingdom’s culture and ways of working. Accreditation, assessment, compliance and various levels of expectation are probably not widely known outside of Saudi. We talk about audits, GACAR 151, and the pressures of a GHA in normal times let alone in today’s most unusual of our industries recent challenges.
