ECS recruits van de Weg as ‘disruptive force’

ECS Group has recruited Robert van de Weg as chief commercial officer to act as “a disruptive force” to help the GSSA reinvent itself “to embody a new business model”.

“We’re completely redefining the contours of what we do,” said Adrien Thominet, ECS Group chief executive. “We’ve created a robust set-up that’s built entirely around sales development, supported by an innovative digital strategy.

“This means that we are capable of bringing new expertise and a business vision to the table that perfectly meets the needs expressed by airlines and Robert is without doubt the perfect contact for our clients.”

Van de Weg, most recently vice president sales & marketing for Volga-Dnepr Group, previously worked with KLM Cargo, Atlas Air and Cargolux. Volga-Dnepr Group, which includes AirBridgeCargo and ATRAN, has recently undergone a restructuring after a financial year that saw cargo volumes decline 6%, falling to 20% under budget.

ECS says van de Weg will help the group, already committed to Total Cargo Management, continue its transformation away from the traditional GSA model. “Robert Van de Weg is the ideal coach to help our (sales) teams reach new heights,” Thominet added.
