Delta Cargo appoints Wilson as new global sales director

Delta Air Lines Cargo has appointed industry veteran Eric Wilson as managing director of cargo global sales, a role previously held by Rob LeBel.

Effective today, he will lead Delta Cargo’s global sales team and sales partners around the world.

Based in Atlanta, he joins the leadership team at a time when Delta says it is realising the benefits of its multi-year transformation with double-digit operational performance improvement and unit revenue growth far surpassing industry averages.

Delta president of cargo and senior vice president of airport customer service, Gareth Joyce says: “Eric brings a strong international background to the position, as well as being renowned throughout the air cargo industry for his customer focus and deep knowledge of the business.

“His extensive cargo and global experience will really serve us well as we continue to implement differentiated products and services across our entire network.”

Wilson joined Delta Cargo in 2008 as general manager for strategic partner programs and national accounts, bringing over 18 years of cargo experience to his role. In 2014 he relocated to Tokyo as director of APAC cargo sales.
