Menzies Aviation has appointed Peter Kelly as Vice President, Cargo Americas to grow its cargo business across Canada, the US and South America.

This follows the recent appointment of Chris Beale as Vice President, Cargo Europe, as the organisation looks to grow its cargo business.

Kelly has 27 years of aviation experience, most recently with American Airlines as the carrier’s Regional Sales Manager in Texas. He also oversaw cargo handling for Mercury Air Cargo across the US and Canada and has worked with UPS Air Cargo in EMEA.

Robert Fordree, EVP Cargo, Menzies Aviation said: “Peter brings with him a wealth of experience in cargo and I am delighted for him to join the team. It’s an exciting time for our cargo team as we focus on seizing opportunities in the cargo market that will sustainably grow the business.”

Kelly commented: “This is a great time to be joining Menzies Aviation as we look to expand our cargo offering in the region and globally. The Americas is a market with great growth opportunity. Menzies has recently renewed cargo agreements at a number of airports in the region, a testament to our services that I will look to build upon. I look forward to helping this part of the business grow further.”
