ANA Cargo has appointed Sadami Sugimoto as its new vice president, cargo and mail, for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

Sugimoto took up the role on July 1 and has 11 years’ of experience in cargo, having worked in marketing, alliance, revenue management, mail sales and operations.

He also spent seven years in Jakarta on non-cargo assignments, but his last role was vice president of international cargo support, operations at ANA Cargo, which he held for two years.

“I am honored to be given the opportunity to serve as vice president for Europe Middle East and Africa,” said Sugimoto. “In this new era of living ‘with Covid-19’, our industry and ANA are faced with a challenge we have never encountered.

“On the other hand, we see a great opportunity to change and be creative. I want to take ANA Cargo in Europe to a new stage and serve our customers better.”
