Virgin Atlantic Cargo regional sales manager - Continental Europe, Claire Phillips

Virgin Atlantic Cargo has promoted Claire Phillips to the role of regional sales manager – Continental Europe, where she will be responsible for revenue and budget attainment in the region.

Phillips, who has worked for the airline for five years, will work closely with Virgin Atlantic Cargo’s customers in the region and be the direct contact for the 17 general sales agent partners in Continental Europe. In her role she will be based at Virgin Atlantic Cargo’s headquarters close to London’s Gatwick Airport.

She will take up her new post from 5 September, and prior to this she was route development manager and capacity controller, and played an integral role in the training and development of the customer service team.

Commenting on her new role, Phillips says: “It’s only when customers start to book cargo with Virgin Atlantic that they realise the wide choice of access points we offer into our international network to major cities across the U.S. as well as to Hong Kong and China, Dubai, South Africa, Nigeria and Australia.”

“I look forward to supporting our customers and GSA partners in the region and to identifying new opportunities and countries where we can achieve further growth.”
