Brussels Airport cargo community a major asset for forward-looking new chief
Covid has decimated the air travel industry: jobs have been lost at airports the world ...
Brussels Airport has promoted Nathan De Valck (pictured above) to the new role of head of product and network development.
He was previously cargo and product development manager, and the move is part of a restructure of the airport’s cargo operation. At the end of last year, head of cargo Steven Polmans was appointed director of cargo & logistics, as all cargo-related business areas – operational, financial, commercial and real estate – were consolidated.
A company statement said Mr De Valck would report directly to Mr Polmans and be “responsible with his team for all business development and key account activities for airlines, forwarders and shippers as well as the further development of the various specialisations and products such as pharma, perishables, animal transport and e-commerce”.
The company added: “In the coming months, the cargo & logistics team will be further strengthened with, among others, a head of cargo real estate, business analyst, park services manager and an operations manager.
“These reinforcements confirm the importance of cargo for the airport and the clear commitment to further develop Brussels Airport as a leading logistics platform in Europe.”
