He will report to Allcargo’s chief digital officer, Vaishnav Shetty.
Jitesh Shetty is an entrepreneur who has also worked for major tech companies, including Google and Yahoo, and is on the board of several other global companies.

ECU suffered a major cyber-attack two years ago, and had appointed Mr Shetty as a non-executive director shortly afterwards.
