Virgin Atlantic Cargo has appointed Paul Fallon as its new director of commercial and business development and Tania Wilson as its new director of operations.
According to Virgin, the new appointments follow Dominic Kennedy’s promotion to managing director of Virgin Atlantic Cargo in August 2017. Both Fallon and Wilson will be based at Virgin’s headquarters near Gatwick Airport.
“As an established member of our cargo executive team, Paul brings great knowledge and expertise to the newly combined responsibility for commercial and business development,” said Kennedy. “I am also delighted Tania has accepted the offer to join cargo as Tania brings a wealth of safety, security and operational expertise and will be a true asset to the team.”
Fallon began his career in Virgin’s commercial team in 2003 and later spent over five years as head of business development. He then assumed the role of director of cargo operations and business development in August 2015.
Wilson will take up her new post in January 2018. She is currently head of safety at Virgin Atlantic and is responsible for flight safety, ground operations safety, engineering safety, cabin safety and occupational health and safety. She joined Virgin Atlantic from Airbus UK in 2001 as a development engineer and took up her existing role in 2013.
