> Michael Pantlin was born and bred in England before studying industrial engineering at Eindhoven University in the Netherlands <

Since then he has had a varied career in a broad range of management capacities at KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. He has proved successful at achieving business results in international partnerships. As Director Corporate Strategy Michael was closely involved in KLM's merger activities culminating in the Air France KLM combination in 2003.


As part of the post-merger integration team Michael focussed on cultural bridging and joint leadership development.
