Robert van de Weg has rejoined Volga-Dnepr as vice president for sales and marketing, a year after leaving the company to pursue other interests.
In his new role, which will be based in London, van de Weg will embrace the commercial activities of the group’s airlines, AirBridgeCargo Airlines, Volga-Dnepr Airlines and Atran Airlines, with responsibility to strengthen and develop the Group’s ‘cargo supermarket’, which utilises scheduled and charter services.
Van de Weg previously spent three years in senior roles with the group before leaving in 2017 to pursue personal interests.
He continued to provide advisory and consulting services to the group, using his extensive knowledge and expertise in the airfreight industry to support the group’s growth.
Van de Weg says it is a “pleasure” to be back and the decision to return stems from both sides taking a “well-considered and balanced view of what we want to achieve”.
He comments: “I have missed the action that comes from being part of a growing and ambitious group of cargo airlines on a day-to-day basis and look forward to engaging fully in the sales and marketing activities of the Group, supporting our customers with more service options as well as progressing ongoing projects to a new level.”
