Francois leaves Brussels Airlines for fresh challenge at Green Yard

Brussels Airlines vice president global cargo, Alban Francois

Alban Francois has left Brussels Airlines Cargo after three years with the company to take up the role of project director operations at fruit supplier Green Yard.

He left the airline on 1 September, which was also the last day of operation of Brussels Airlines Cargo as Lufthansa Cargo took over the sales of its capacity.

Francois spent two years as strategic sourcing and procurement manager and three years as vice president global cargo, which he described as “a fantastic adventure”.

In a message on his LinkedIn account, Francois said: “SN’s volumes grew substantially and this wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of the SN Cargo team, the commitment of our suppliers to continuously follow us to achieve operational excellence and trust of our customers.”

He added that three years ago air cargo was unknown to him “however, pretty soon I was a member of a community/a family both in Brussels and worldwide looking to improve the overall industry beyond the companies’ borders.”

Francois ended the post saying: “A chapter is closing tonight. I am leaving Brussels Airlines and the air cargo industry with a solid expertise, good memories … and new friends.”
