ATSG assigns Trisha Frank as VP of government programs
Air Transport Services Group, Inc., (ATSG) has appointed Trisha Frank as the new ‘vice president of government programs’. This expands her role, as she also is the leader of government programs at Omni Air International, a wholly owned airline subsidiary of ATSG.
"ATSG has always been committed to providing the best possible service to U.S. government agencies," said Rich Corrado, president and chief executive officer of ATSG, "and Trisha’s work at Omni has substantially strengthened our relationships with government customers. Extending Trisha’s in-depth knowledge and leadership to the corporate level will ensure that our service commitment never wavers as we continue to grow this important facet of our business.”
Frank joined Omni in 1995 and was promoted to director of marketing in 1997, overseeing the airline’s charter sales and Civil Reserve Air Fleet (CRAF) contract with the U.S. Department of Defense. She continues to be vice president of government programs at Omni. In 2011, she became the team lead for the Patriot Team, which comprises nine commercial airlines committed to augment the military’s own air transport capabilities. She will continue to focus on this important management responsibility. She also serves as the public affairs coordinator for the Airlift/Tanker Association. Frank holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Oklahoma State University.
“I can’t say enough about what Trisha has done for Omni,” said Dan Orcutt, president of Omni. “She played a key role in expanding our services within the passenger sector, specifically in transporting military passengers, and has been instrumental in ensuring that we continue to provide our government customers with the outstanding service they deserve. I am excited that she can now leverage her experience on behalf of the entire ATSG family.”
ATSG is the largest provider of passenger charter service to the U.S. Department of Defense and other government agencies. All three of the company’s airline subsidiaries, including its cargo airlines Air Transport International and ABX Air, have been providing services to the Department of Defense since the 1990s. In 2020, government work accounted for 31 percent of ATSG’s consolidated revenues.
