Chapman Freeborn appoints Vaz-Arab as regional director

 Chapman Freeborn has appointed Sharon Vaz-Arab as its new director – India, Middle East & Africa (IMEA).

Vaz-Arab  arrives at the company following 26 years at Cargolux Airlines, where she began in sales and progressed to director of Middle East and Indian operations. She also managed global accounts for Etihad Airways.

Based in the company’s Dubai office, she is now tasked with managing its business in the IMEA region, working closely with Neil Dursley, Chapman Freeborn’s chief commercial officer.
