Elliott Paige, (pictured above) former director for air service development at Atlanta Airport, is to join consultancy SASI World as vice president airport practices.
Mr Paige has 25 years’ experience in trade facilitation, and has worked for the WTO among other roles.
SASI said Mr Paige would bring “a focus on airport and stakeholder collaboration and development that leads to greater logistics efficiency, customer satisfaction and profitability”, as well as practical experience.
Mr Paige said: “I have been involved in many aspects of trade promotion in my career, from customs and border charges to trade policy and market penetration to logistics and supply chain management.
“Implementation is key to promoting trade that leads to prosperity for the stakeholders and. ultimately, their consumers. Via SASI World, I can bring key innovations to ports globally, creating greater efficiencies and long-term growth for all stakeholders. I am excited to develop profitable partnerships with SASI World clients as part of this team.”
Shortly before the announcement was made, Mr Paige, who was at Atlanta Airport for eight years, told delegates at the Air Cargo Handling & Logistics conference in Athens that “privately run airports make nimble decisions”, a possible reference to city-owned Atlanta Airport, which observers claim can be slow in its decision-making.
