TIACA selects Hourcade to join transformation team

By Rachelle Harry

The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) has appointed Celine Hourcade as a project manager. From September, in her new role, Hourcade will support the Association’s transformation programme.

The first two priorities for Hourcade are to lead the development of TIACA’s sustainability programme and sustainability award, as well as the delivery of its cargo service quality (CSQ) objectives.

Hourcade will head up further projects as the association continues to roll out new initiatives as part of its ongoing drive to grow while delivering a “reinvigorated value proposition for members”.

Hourcade has 18 years of experience in international business, mainly in the aviation industry. She has previously worked for WaveStone and Amadeus, and also spent 13 years at the IATA in its cargo department.

Hourcade has developed a range of projects at IATA including the Future Air Cargo Executive (FACE) programme, designed to attract, develop, and retain young talent in air cargo; the Air Cargo Makes It Happen campaign; the Air Cargo Carbon Footprint measurement standard; the Global Shippers Surveys; the Air Cargo Innovation Awards; and the StB Cargo program.

“I am very happy and excited that Hourcade is joining our team,” said Steven Polmans, TIACA chairman, and director, cargo and logistics, the Brussels Airport Company. “Hourcade is very well respected in our industry and did a great job when working for the IATA. No doubt she will continue to do so when working for TIACA and our members.”

“I am thrilled to join the TIACA team and work with Steven [Polmans, TIACA chairman], Sanjeev [Gadhia, TIACA vice chairman], and Vladimir [Zubkov, TIACA secretary general] to put sustainability and diversity at the top of its agenda,” added Hourcade.
