LATAM Cargo has promoted Andrés Bianchi (pictured below) to chief executive officer (CEO) from his role as senior vice president (VP) of sales for North America, Europe and Asia.

He will take on the position from 15 April when current CEO, Cristián Ureta leaves the company and has been part of the group since 2001 when he joined the finance department.

“We will focus on reinforcing LATAM Cargo’s competitiveness in order to maintain our leadership in Latin America. We plan to achieve this by continuing to support our customers closely, improving our product portfolio, and enhancing our productivity,” says Bianchi.

This change is part of the restricting process that LATAM Airlines Group and its affiliates are undergoing, which it says is “aimed at building a simpler and more efficient organization that can face complex macroeconomic scenarios and a more competitive environment”.
