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.
