Air Canada Cargo has announced the appointment of four industry veterans to key leadership positions as it positions itself for continued growth.

Janet Wallace is now senior director, cargo transformation, Milt Fenske becomes director, cargo sales – US, and Barbara Johnston has been named director, cargo operations Canada.

“I am thrilled to be strengthening our senior leadership team at Air Canada Cargo just as we launch our dedicated freighter operations and build on the early successes of our ‘Rivo’ eCommerce platform,” said Jason Berry, vice president, cargo, at Air Canada. “These trusted leaders will play a pivotal role in our continued growth and expansion.”
