Swiss WorldCargo is to reorganise in the Americas with two sales regions instead of three as of October.
The two regions will now consist of Northeast/Midwest USA and Canada, and the newly created Western, Southern USA & South America, and there has been a shake up of management.
Hendrik Falk joined Swiss on 10 July as head of the region Western, Southern USA & South America, bringing nearly 30 years of industry experience with him, most recently as vice president for North and South America at AirBridgeCargo Airlines.
He will be based in Atlanta.
The Northeast/Midwest USA and Canada will continue to be led by New York-based Michael Ganz, who joined the American organisation two years ago, having held positions at Swisscargo and Swiss WorldCargo in Zurich.
Rene Brechbuehl, who was head of the Southeast USA & South America region for three years will be retiring in October following 44 years with Swissair and Swiss.
Swiss WorldCargo says: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank René for his outstanding dedication and outstanding contribution, and to wish Hendrik and Michael much success in leading the Swiss WorldCargo organisation in the Americas.”
