Bert Selis has joined Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) but will remain based in Liege, leaving his role at the Belgian airport after nine years.

Selis is now the ground handler’s vice president business development, e-commerce, express and freight forwarders EMEAA.

He has close to 20 years’ experience in business development and sales in the air cargo and aviation industry and was most recently vice president cargo & logistics at Liege Airport, where he was responsible for the growth of the airport and attracting key global cargo players to the key European hub.

Reporting to Marc Claesen, WFS’ senior vice president commercial EMEAA, Selis will  support the company’s EMEAA commercial team in expanding WFS’ strategic focus on e-commerce, express and freight forwarder activities in the region.

Claesen said: “Bert is a valuable addition to our EMEAA management team and brings considerable knowledge and expertise to our organisation.

“Over the past two or more years, WFS, as the world’s largest air cargo handler, has pivoted to meet the needs of the airline, freight forwarding, express and e-commerce sectors and this has created some exciting opportunities to grow our relationships with existing customers, and to engage in new ventures.”

Selis started his career in the cargo handling department of the former Belgian flag carrier Sabena and later moved to Swissport. He also served as a Business Development Manager with the road transport and logistics company, H. Essers, and as Global Sales Leader with international flight academy, CAE.
