He will lead the company’s commercial strategy and business development of its cargo and ground handling operations in North and South America.

Lynch will be based in Dallas/Fort Worth and report to Mike Simpson, WFS’ executive vice president Americas.

“[Lynch] will build out WFS’ sales capabilities through collaborative training and mentoring, work closely with the operations group to ensure successful implementation and ongoing operations with new and existing customers, and challenge current practices to increase revenue and maximize profitability,” the company said.

He brings 30 years of experience to WFS from across his previous B2B and B2C roles in industries including consumer goods, food and beverage, and waste disposal.

Commenting on his new role, Lynch said: “WFS has a strong and growing presence in the handling market in the Americas and I am excited to work with our sales team and operations group to identify the commercial benefits we can derive from demonstrating the scope of our network and the quality of our cargo and ground handling services.”

WFS operates 97 airport stations in North America – including in New York JFK, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, and Houston – and a further 19 stations in South America (Brazil).

In North America, WFS provides ground handing and passenger services for some 140,000 flights per annum and handles more than 3m tonnes of cargo a year.
