Christian Göseke named as new CFO for Arriva Group

Arriva has announced the appointment of Christian Göseke as Chief Financial Officer (CFO), who will take up the role on 14 December 2020, including a position on the Arriva Management Board.  The role has been overseen by Iain Jago – Group Finance Director – since Martin Hibbert announced his retirement earlier this year after having spent 18 years with the company.

Christian most recently held the position of Group CFO at Swissport International AG, based in Zurich, Switzerland, where he was a member of the Executive Management Team. Prior to that, Christian was Managing Director of Gate Gourmet, part of the Gate Group, with responsibility for the airline catering business across Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. He has also held CFO and senior management positions at Rhenus Logistics GmbH (previously Wincanton GmbH), Delton AG, and Orbit Software Holding AG. He graduated from Otto-Beisheim School of Management and started his career with McKinsey and Company.

Commenting on his appointment, Mike Cooper, the Arriva Group CEO said: “We are pleased to welcome Christian to his new role. He brings with him a wealth of cross-industry experience, as well as leading substantial financial and strategic transformation programmes and implementing new value-drive systems and processes and significant M&A opportunities. I look forward to working with him as we lead Arriva through the next phase of its development.


“I also want to thank Iain Jago for taking on the role of Interim CFO following Martin’s departure. He has helped steer Arriva through these unprecedented times and we thank him for all his efforts, support and guidance.”

Christian Göseke commented: “It is an incredibly exciting time to join Arriva. I look forward to working with the Arriva team and its shareholder DB to ensure Arriva adapts to the changing market conditions and delivers the group’s strategy. I am excited about leading its finance organisation to contribute to Arriva’s success.”
