LATAM Airlines Group has appointed Otávio Meneguette as LATAM Cargo Brazil vice president, responsible for leading the company’s air cargo business strategy in the Brazilian market.

Meneguette joined LATAM Airlines Group in 2015, initially working in cargo planning and commercial areas. Since 2019, he had been LATAM Cargo Brazil’s operations vice president.

Before joining the LATAM Group, he worked for large corporations such as Suzano Papel & Celulose and Votorantim Cimentos. He also has over 13 years of professional experience with roles in commercial strategy, logistics, supply chain and new business development.

“I am motivated by this new challenge and excited to follow up on this great moment for our cargo business. LATAM Cargo is a reference for the sector in terms of operation and is also very important for our sustainability as a Group. We will continue working to identify opportunities, enable new businesses and offer innovations to all customers who trust our network’s connectivity and our excellence in logistics,” said Meneguette.

He replaces Diogo Elias, recently appointed as sales and marketing director for LATAM Airlines Brazil.
