Etihad Cargo has announced two senior management changes, the first, senior vice president David Kerr will be leaving the company at the end of the year to pursue another opportunity within the industry. The company has also welcomed Justin Carr as vice president cargo commercial.
Peter Baumgartner, CEO of Etihad Airways, recognised Kerr’s extraordinary contribution to the company. “During his seven-and-a-half-year tenure, Etihad Cargo’s business trebled to become a billion dollar organisation,” he said.
“I would personally like to thank David for his tremendous work and to wish him well for the future.”
Carr, meanwhile, brings more than two decades of logistics industry experience, joining the Abu Dhabi based carrier from DHL where he was head of MNC Business Development for the Middle East and Africa region. In his new role, he is responsible for the business’s commercial proposition including global sales, key accounts, product teams, and Etihad Cargo’s freighter platforms.
Baumgartner said: “We welcome Justin to the team at this exciting and challenging time in the air cargo industry. His experience and familiarity with the region and customers are already paying dividends.”
