New president for ABX Air

David Soaper will become the new president of aircraft lessor ABX Air after current incumbent John Starkovich retires from the role in February.
Soaper most recently held the position of president and chief operating officer at Connecticut-based Southern Air.
Prior to that he served as senior vice president of aircraft operations for regional airline Comair during a 28-year career with that company.
Soaper holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Wilmington College. He is an FAA-licensed commercial pilot with instrument and multi-engine ratings, and is a licensed aircraft dispatcher.
President and chief executive of ABX parent, ATSG, Joe Hete thanked Starkovich for 18 years at the lessor.
“John has brought immense value to this company through a diligent work ethic and prudent leadership style that set the standard among his peers," said Hete.
"We’re grateful for the role he played in ensuring the safe and reliable operation of the airline during his tenure here, and we wish him the very best in the future."
