The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) announced that four new members have been appointed to serve on the Board of Directors broadening the industry expertise of the current Board makeup.
Following a year of internal re-organization and the changing of our governance structure, TIACA has announced the appointment of four new Board Members; Liana Coyne, Coyne Airways; Bob Chi, SATS Ltd; Manel Galindo, WebCargo; and Hendrik Leyssens, Swissport.
Each new Board member has been vetted by the Executive Committee to ensure that the candidates not only share the association’s vision for the air cargo industry but also is in line with the mandate that was set by our Trustees to have a Board that fairly represents the membership by industry sector and region.
“The last year has shown the world the value of the entire air cargo supply chain and what can be achieved when organizations collaborate effectively with a common purpose. TIACA is the only global association that encompasses the entire supply chain within its membership and we are proud to have such a representative Board steering the Association in tackling the critical issues the industry faces”, stated Steven Polmans, TIACA Chairman.
Polmans continued “As part of TIACA’s Transformation Program, we found it imperative that our Board represents the entire supply chain and we are working to ensure that this mandate is fulfilled. These new Board members fill roles within our Board that have been underrepresented in the past. We look forward to the insight and expertise each of these industry leaders will bring to the table. Whilst our work to diversify our Board is far from over, we feel we have made a solid start.”
