David Kerr, senior vice president of Etihad Cargo, will be leaving the company at the end of 2017 to pursue another opportunity within the industry.
According to Etihad Cargo, Kerr will continue to lead the carrier until the end of the year. His successor will be announced in the coming months.
“During his seven-and-a-half-year tenure, Etihad Cargo’s business trebled to become a billion-dollar organization,” said Peter Baumgartner, chief executive officer of Etihad Airways. “I would personally like to thank David for his tremendous work and to wish him well for the future.”
In the meantime, Etihad has appointed Justin Carr as its new vice president of cargo commercial. He will be responsible for the company’s commercial proposition, including global sales, key accounts, product teams and Etihad Cargo’s freighter platforms.
Carr has more than two decades of logistics experience and joins from DHL, where he was head of MNC business development for the Middle East and Africa regions.
“We welcome Justin to the team at this exciting and challenging time in the air cargo industry,” said Baumgartner. “His experience and familiarity with the region and customers are already paying dividends.”
