AA Cargo appoints new regional sales manager

American Airlines Cargo has appointed Richard Hartmann to the newly created position of regional sales manager, cargo, South Asia, Middle East and Africa.
Hartmann will be in charge of both sales development in the existing countries served by the carrier in the region and also extending the airline’s reach into new territories such as Africa.
He takes up his role on July 2 and will be responsible for the mature markets American already serves, such as Italy and Scandinavia as well as emerging markets that include India and the Middle East
In addition, he will develop the airline’s services to and from offline markets, most notably across Africa. Israel and eastern Europe will also come under his remit.
Hartmann has more than 30 years of experience in the air cargo industry in both the airline and freight forwarding sectors, including working in Africa. He joined the airline’s cargo division in 2011 as a global key account manager.
Hartmann said: “Our business is changing all the time, particularly with the advent of new aircraft on many routes, so there’s tremendous potential for growth of our cargo services, with Italy being the prime example in southern Europe.
"There is also a real window of opportunity for us in many offline markets where I will be focusing attention on extending our business reach to many more forwarders."
He will report directly to Tristan Koch, managing director of sales, cargo, Europe, Middle East and Africa.
