Pravin has delivered an outstanding performance as area commercial manager and has a clear understanding of how to best serve our customers in this region. I have every confidence he will succeed in his new role.”
Mr Singh added: “Having managed IAG Cargo’s commercial performance across part of this region for the past four years, I am excited to take up the challenge of managing the broader geographic region and continuing to expand IAG Cargo’s market share.”
