IAG Cargo appoints Embleton as chief executive to replace Crawley


IAG Cargo has appointed Lynne Embleton as its new chief executive with immediate effect – replacing Drew Crawley – who becomes chief executive of Avios.

Embleton moves from her role as British Airways managing director at Gatwick Airport and will also join the IAG management committee, reporting directly into its chief executive Willie Walsh.

She has over 25 years of experience across the Group, heading up strategy at British Airways, before moving on to become BA MD at Gatwick. She previously sat on the IAG Cargo board as a non-executive director for over four years.

Walsh comments: “Lynne’s extensive experience across Group strategy as well as on the IAG Cargo board will be invaluable in the continued growth of our cargo business.”
