Swiss WorldCargo gears up for growth in the American market
August 16, 2017: Swiss WorldCargo has consolidated its presence in the American market by announcing a new organisational set-up in the market. Effective October 2017, Swiss WorldCargo’s American organisation will be consolidated from three to two regions: Western, Southern USA & South America and Northeast/Midwest USA and Canada.
The newly created region Western, Southern USA & South America will be headed by Hendrik Falk, who has recently joined Swiss WorldCargo and will be based in Atlanta. Hendrik has extensive executive experience and almost thirty years expertise in the air cargo industry. In his former role as vice president North and South America of an international all cargo carrier, he was responsible for all aspects of that company’s activities in both continents. Previously, he held several executive roles for industry leaders in various challenging capacities in the USA, Asia and in Europe.
The region Northeast/Midwest USA and Canada will continue to be led by Michael Ganz, based in New York. Michael joined the American organisation two years ago, after holding several commercial management positions at Swisscargo and Swiss WorldCargo in Zurich.
René Brechbuehl, who had been successfully heading the region South-East USA & South America for the last 3 years, will be leaving Swiss WorldCargo in October to begin his well-deserved retirement following 44 years of service with Swissair and SWISS.
