Martin Drew to take the reins at Etihad Cargo
Etihad Aviation Group has promoted Martin Drew to the role of managing director - Cargo and Logistics. Drew, who has been associated with the carrier for close to 15 years at several senior roles, will assume the position on November 1 and will report directly into Etihad Aviation Group chief commercial officer, Robin Kamark.
An industry veteran with more than 20 years of industry experience in both cargo and passenger management, Drew will now be responsible for Etihad Cargo and Etihad Secure Logistics. Drew will take over from Abdulla Mohamed Shadid, who announced his decision to step down from his role in July.
Most recently, Drew was at the helm of Etihad Airways’ global sales organisation across Europe and Americas, and previously served as vice president - Cargo at Jet Airways, after nine years with Etihad Cargo where he held various senior positions between 2005 and 2014.
“Martin (Drew) has a vast amount of cargo and passenger management experience and brings strategic and tactical leadership skills to support the continued growth of our cargo business,” said Kamark. “Following the significant success of our cargo division over the past two years, I am confident Martin will oversee a new era of success for Etihad Cargo and Etihad Secure Logistics.”
