Volga-Dnepr has appointed Konstantin Vekshin as its new chief executive.

Vekshin joined Volga-Dnepr Group, which includes AirBridgeCargo, Atran and Volga-Dnepr, in 1997 and developed his career from sales executive to chief commercial officer.  

Between 2013 and 2016, he held the positions of vice president, charter & government division with Centurion Cargo Airlines and vice president of airfreight charters with Bertling Logistics.  

In October 2016, he returned to Volga-Dnepr Group taking up management roles at CargoLogicManagement and Volga-Dnepr UK.  

“In 2020, critical year for the industry with the challenges brough by the global pandemic, Konstantin took the unprecedented leadership for the entire sales organisation of Volga-Dnepr Group as chief commercial officer and introduced the changes with great potential beyond the Covid crisis,” the carrier said in a statement.

“Significant development of the sales organization has been recorded under Konstantin’s leadership including expansion of the strategic partnership network, centralisation of charter cargo operations function, synergy of the sales teams of the monocompany in order to implement the cargo supermarket concept as well as a new chapter in the ILS (integrated logistics service) platform’s development. “
