Chapman Freeborn has appointed Malcolm Dsouza as its new director, India.
Dsouza joins the business following over 10 years at Jeena & Company, India’s largest freight forwarder in the global market. He also has over 18 years’ experience working with international airlines, 10 of which were in senior management roles in their cargo divisions.
Based in the Chapman Freeborn Mumbai office, Dsouza’s focus is to develop the business into the leading charter broker company in India. He plans on gaining a strong and comprehensive understanding of customers’ requirements, and further building upon the solid cargo and passenger brokerage teams to service these needs.
Malcolm explains: “India is one of the biggest markets in the world. There is so much potential for growth here and I look forward to strategising how we can expand in this market, including new areas for us, such as private jets and group passenger travel.”
Malcolm will be reporting into Sharon Vaz-Arab, IMEA regional director.
She commented: “We are delighted to welcome Malcolm to Chapman Freeborn. His decades of experience in logistics and aviation will be integral to our growth in India, as we optimise on existing markets and discover the potential of new ones. Under the leadership of Malcom, we plan to expand our Chapman Freeborn foot print in India on the Cargo, Business Aviation and ACMI verticals. I have every confidence that Malcolm will help the business grow into its next phase.”
