Effective May 1st Ian Morgan is ECS Group’s new Group Commercial Director for the USA. This key recruitment marks the beginning of a promising collaboration between two high profile actors of the air freight industry.
The appointment of Ian Morgan, previously Qatar Airways Cargo’s Vice President Cargo for the Americas, fits perfectly with ECS Group’s ongoing development and plan to create a position of Group Commercial Director for the USA.
“Our wish was to benefit from the support of someone who would not only have a solid cargo experience but who would also share the values of our group. Ian was the ideal candidate,” states Adrien Thominet, Executive Chairman of ECS Group. Having gained considerable airfreight expertise in the USA while working as a manager for the biggest companies, Ian joins ECS Group with a substantial network and a great ability to meet the requirements of the GSSA’s customers, thanks to his strong airline background.
As ECS Group’s Group Commercial Director for the USA, Ian’s role will entail a wide range of commercial responsibilities. From ensuring the Group’s commercial performance to managing the interface with USA based customers with high growth potential, the position will also involve contributing to the Group’s business development.
This new role is essential as ECS Group has great expectations for the USA. With a number of contracts on the increase in terms of capacity, the American market is highly strategic for the GSSA.
“The opportunity to join the premium GSSA in the business, and to work for two people I respect immensely, was something that professionally I knew was the right step in my career. I look forward to collaborating with the ECS team to further develop and enhance the excellent brand and reputation that ECS has globally as well as regionally“ says Ian Morgan, ECS Group’s Group Commercial Director, USA.
