Dr Oliver Doerschuck

SSP has named Dr Oliver Doerschuck as its new CEO of its regions in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

He replaces Cornelius Everke at the helm of the food outlet operator’s Dach & Frabel region, who is leaving the company to “take on new career challenges” after 10 years.

Doerschuck was previously CCO of TUI Deutschland and headed the commercial activities of airline TUIfly.

“We are looking forward to welcoming Oliver Doerschuck as CEO of one of our most important and competitive regions,” said SSP Group CEO Kate Swann.

“He has considerable experience in the strategic development of concepts that offer customers a great experience as well as delivering sound commercial results. Doerschuck has also created and fostered the success of a diverse collection of brands.”

During his 10 years with SSP, Everke was closely involved with the refinancing of the business and its successful IPO, as well as the integration of the Dach region.

Swann added: “We have seen sustained and profitable expansion over recent years in these markets, as well as a significant development of the brand portfolio. I would like to thank Cornelius for all his efforts, and wish him the very best in his future ventures.”
