IAG Cargo reveals new look executive structure

IAG Cargo has made a number of changes to its executive management team to “align with its business priorities”.
The new look executive team is charged with driving performance across premium products, digital transformation, customer service and global operations, the airline group said.
The shake-up sees David Shepherd, currently commercial director, move to the newly created role of director of digital ventures while Camilo Garcia, currently head of sales, becomes the new director of sales, marketing and product.
A new director of worldwide operations role will be filled by Lynn McClelland, who now has overall accountability for global operations outside Spain, adding regional operations and customer service to her recent London and Dublin responsibilities.
IAG Cargo chief executive, Lynne Embleton, said: “We have ambitious plans for the next few years and I believe our new structure, new positions and new talent will put us in a strong position to achieve the transformational changes we want to make for our customers and our business.”
“The newly created role of director of digital ventures will be crucial in ensuring that we’re taking strategic action in response to the opportunities that technology can bring to our industry.
“With David’s deep experience within the business, he is well placed to take the lead on this new focus.
“Meanwhile, I am delighted to announce that Lynn McClelland will be adding regional operations and customer service to her recent London and Dublin responsibilities, giving her global oversight of our operations.
“Finally, Camilo’s talent and knowledge of the business will be invaluable as we welcome him to the executive team as director of sales, marketing and product.”
Embleton had hinted at a possible re-organisation of the management structure during an interview with Air Cargo News shortly after she took up the role.
