Amerijet management changes
29 / 06 / 2018
Miami-based all-cargo carrier Amerijet International has appointed Jon Olin as senior vice president for corporate strategy and administration, and Derry Huff to the role of vice president of sales and marketing.
Olin will be responsible for developing and guiding strategic growth, and leading various administrative functions for Amerijet, which operates a fleet of B767-200/300 freighter aircraft.
Olin has over 20 years of aviation and logistics experience in the areas of law, risk, regulation, and general management. Huff was previously vice president of strategic initiatives.
Amerijet chief executive Vic Karjian said: “Olin rounds out a highly experienced, industry-diverse executive team for Amerijet. He brings to the company a unique strategic outlook as well as significant integrator and all-cargo ACMI aviation industry experience.”
In his new role, Huff will oversee the overall sales, marketing, and development of the Amerijet portfolio of products, including domestic and international scheduled air and road feeder services, interline, charter sales, new route/market development and the management of corporate level relationships with its major forwarder accounts.
“Derry will continue to make an important contribution to the company in this new role. Being with Amerijet for almost 30 years, he has seen the company change and grow and will continue to use his vast amount of experience to propel us to the next level,” added Karjian.
Prior to Amerijet, Olin spent 15 years as a senior executive with Deutsche Post-DHL. Subsequently, he was part of an executive team that completed a successful corporate turnaround and strategic sale of private-equity backed Southern Air as its chief administrative officer.
Since joining Amerijet in 1989, Huff has held the positions of second officer, first officer and captain on the Boeing 727, as well as chief pilot and director of operations. In 2008, he transitioned from operations to business development.
Earlier this month (June) Amerijet named Glen Gates director of charter sales, responsible for overseeing the growth and diversification of that side of the carrier’s business.
That appointment, said Huff at the time, was intended to “fortify the entire Amerijet senior management team and help take the company to the next level of charter sales”.
