WFS Appoints Senior Vice President, Group Commercial Business Development and Strategy


Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has appointed Mohammed Esa as senior vice president, group commercial business development and strategy.

Esa, as he’s known to friends and colleagues, brings 30 years of global leadership experience in commercial and operational roles in the transportation and logistics industries, having spent the last 18 years at Agility Logistics, most recently as SVP global business development and global lead digital customer solutions. In this role, he was responsible for shaping and executing Agility’s commercial strategy, building long-term customer relationships across various industry sectors, and overseeing the deployment of new and emerging technology solutions.

He previously also served as Agility’s chief executive officer and SVP of UAE, Oman and Bahrain, and as the company’s VP sales for the Asia Pacific region. Before joining Agility, he spent 13 years at Emirates Airline, based in Dubai, in finance, operations and business development roles.

At WFS, Esa’s mission is to develop and oversee the implementation of WFS’ commercial development strategies to ensure a fully integrated commercial approach to drive future growth. He will also help to identify and develop new lines of business and focus on the development of digital solutions which support WFS’ customer experience and organic growth.

“Esa is a tremendous addition to WFS’ already-strong commercial team. His business skills gained from such a successful career in the airline and forwarding industries, alongside his knowledge of international management cultures, and understanding of how digitization is driving customer relationships and business growth, will be a great asset in the delivery of WFS’ global commercial strategy. He will be a strong contributor to the next phase of our growth,” said Barry Nassberg, group chief commercial officer at WFS.
