John Johnston, former chief of Champ, has become Group CEO at Accelya, a company which specialises in airline finance processes.

Mr Johnston’s move into Accelya’s leadership team is a part of the succession plan of Philippe Lesueur, president Accelya Group, who will continue to remain on the Board of Accelya companies and serve as an advisor.

John Johnston was until the start of this year chief executive officer of Champ Cargosystems and was responsible for the creation and growth of the company. He has been replaced there by Arnaud Lambert.

During his career, Mr Johnston has held senior executive positions in several countries and has provided senior management and consulting services to a number of global airlines.

Mr Johnston said: “Accelya is a great company and leader in its field, providing exceptional customer service. I am excited about the opportunity to drive further growth, expanding the global team and opening new markets.”

Mr Lesueur added: “We are happy to get John on board. John is a proven leader, with a great track record for growth and I am confident that he is the right person to lead the group.”
