Delta boosts global cargo business
Delta Air Lines Cargo has appointed industry veteran Eric Wilson as managing director, cargo global sales, a role previously held by Rob LeBel. Effective immediately, Wilson leads the US carrier's global sales team and sales partners around the world.
Based in Atlanta GA, Wilson is now part of Delta Cargo's leadership team that includes Kristin Colvile and Julian Soell, under Gareth Joyce.
Wilson's appointment comes at a time when Delta Cargo is realizing the benefits of its multi-year transformation with double digit operational performance improvement and unit revenue growth far surpassing industry averages.
A veteran with 25 years of industry experience, and 18 years in the cargo sector, Wilson joined Delta Cargo in 2008 as general manager — strategic partner programmes and national accounts, bringing over 18 years of cargo experience to his role. In 2014 he relocated to Tokyo to assume the position of director — APAC cargo sales. (ah)
