Etihad Aviation Group (EAG) has promoted Martin Drew to the role of managing director – cargo and logistics.

Responsible for the entire Etihad Cargo business, as well as Etihad Secure Logistics, Drew will report directly into Etihad Aviation Group chief commercial officer, Robin Kamark.

With more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, Drew has been with Etihad for more than 15 years, working across various senior positions.

“Martin has a vast amount of cargo and passenger management experience and brings strategic and tactical leadership skills to support the continued growth of our cargo business,” said Kamark. “Following the significant success of our cargo division over the past two years, I am confident Martin will oversee a new era of success for Etihad Cargo and Etihad Secure Logistics.”

Drew most recently headed Etihad Airways’ global sales organisation across Europe and Americas, and previously served as vice president cargo at Jet Airways, after nine years with Etihad Cargo where he held various senior positions between 2005 and 2014.

Drew will assume the role from November 1, 2020, and will be based at Etihad’s global headquarters in Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital.

He replaces Abdulla Mohamed Shadid, who took over the role in March 2018 from David Kerr.
