Etihad Cargo has made several Emirati national appointments within its commercial operations to enhance both its Global Customer programme and its UAE home market.
The UAE Commercial function will be headed by Bader Ahmed Al Ali, who will look after key UAE customer accounts, UAE government key accounts, Dubai and Northern Emirates sales, Abu Dhabi sales, imports and Etihad Cargo counter sales at the Abu Dhabi Cargo Terminal, as well as specialised product sales.
He will oversee fellow Emiratis taking up new roles within the UAE Commercial team with Raya Mohamed Ibrahim for UAE key accounts, Hessa Al Shehhi for government key accounts and Aref Al Mulla for Dubai and Northern Emirates sales helping Etihad Cargo better serve its home market.
Haleema Al Hosani will lead the commercial programmes of Etihad Cargo’s revamped Global Customer programme and Cargo Loyalty scheme.
She has been with the Etihad Aviation Group for over two years, and prior to this held several posts with the Abu Dhabi Department of Transport, Abu Dhabi Aviation Sector Development Committee and the International Civil Aviation Organization Air Transport Regulatory Panel.
Abdulla Mohamed Shadid managing director of cargo and logistics services for the Etihad Aviation Group says that in the 15 years since its inception, Etihad Cargo has become a top 20 air cargo carrier.
He says: “Our Global Customer programme, our loyalty scheme and our UAE home market have all been key catalysts for this growth, and today’s key Emirati appointments are a further signal of our commitment to better serve these segments, while developing our top Emirati talents into key leadership positions.”
