ULD firm ACL Airshop has appointed James Harris as chief financial officer.

ACL said that Harris has “an extensive background in financial leadership, mergers & acquisitions, capital markets, and enterprise management”.

Harris has worked at a range of firms over his career, including Price Waterhouse, Forum Energy Technologies and Pacific Drilling.

Steve Townes, chief executive of ACL Airshop, said: “Jim Harris brings decades of sophisticated strengths in both finance and corporate leadership to our aggressively growing enterprise.

“He will be a key contributor to our high-performance culture and our financial disciplines. Accelerated growth requires solid financial structure, astute analytical support, and rigorous reporting rhythms.”

ACL Airshop owns, maintains and leases more than 60,000 Unit Load Devices (ULDs), including airfreight pallets and containers, issued from 55 airport hub locations across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Latin America.

In April of this year, the company was acquired by infrastructure fund manager Alinda Capital Partners as it looked to fuel further growth.
