Amerijet International Airlines has strengthened its leadership team with the appointments of Jon Olin and Derry Huff to senior roles.
Olin has been appointed senior vice president for corporate strategy and administration, taking responsibility for developing and guiding strategic growth opportunities for the company, and leading various administrative functions for Amerijet.
Amerijet chief executive officer, Vic Karjian says: “Olin rounds out a highly experienced, industry-diverse executive team for Amerijet. He brings to the company a unique strategic outlook as well as significant integrator and all-cargo ACMI aviation industry experience, adding to our foundation of strong leadership that will drive Amerijet’s current and future growth initiatives.”
Huff has been promoted from vice president of strategic initiatives to vice president of sales and marketing, where he will oversee sales, marketing and development of the Amerijet portfolio of products, including domestic and international scheduled air and road feeder services, interline, charter sales, new route/market development and the management of corporate level relationships with its major forwarder accounts.
Karjian says: “Derry will continue to make an important contribution to the company in this new role. Being with Amerijet for almost 30 years, he has seen the company change and grow and will continue to use his vast amount of experience to propel us to the next level.”
Prior to joining Amerijet, Olin spent 15 years as a top executive at Deutsche Post DHL, and was part of an executive team that completed a successful corporate turnaround and strategic sale of private-equity backed Southern Air.
Huff joined Amerijet in 1989 and has held the positions of second officer, first officer and captain on the Boeing 727, as well as chief pilot and director of operations.
In 2008 he transitioned from operations to business development, where he leveraged his extensive operations experience to support the commercial growth of Amerijet.
