Kerr to takeover as CEO of CargoLogicAir from 1 January

Etihad Cargo senior vice president, David Kerr will takeover as chief executive officer (CEO) of British freighter carrier CargoLogicAir on 1 January next year.

Last week, it was announced that Kerr was leaving Etihad at the end of the year to “pursue another opportunity“ and the UAE carrier also appointed Justin Carr as vice president of cargo commercial.

The current CEO of CargoLogicAir is Dmitry Grishin, but the carrier revealed no details of what is happening to him, although some reports explain he will stay within the Volga-Dnepr Group.

CargoLogicAir advisory board chairman, Sir John Holmes says: “David is a highly respected, experienced and well-known air cargo industry executive who will bring new insight into the business and lead CargoLogicAir towards our strategic goal of recognition as one of the leaders in the European airfreight industry.”

Kerr has more than 20 years of experience in the airline sector, holding senior roles for companies in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

His career-to-date has embraced the fulfilment of strategic goals, overall performance improvement, and the successful enhancement of aircraft fleets and networks, coupled with accountability for commercial and operational issues.

In his new role of CEO of CargoLogicAir, Kerr will be responsible for the successful implementation of the airline’s strategic development plans, orchestrating the growth of its freighter fleet and its network, with the focus on specialized logistics solutions for different industries.

CargoLogicAir has recently started its first UK scheduled Boeing 747-800 Freighter flights to Mexico International Airport from London Stansted Airport and also revealed in the last week to start a 747-8F scheduled service to Dubai and Hong Kong.
