Atlas Air has appointed new regional management for its sales and marketing efforts in Europe, Africa, The Mideast and South Asia, and will establish smaller operating units in Hong Kong and Stansted, England.
Robert van de Weg has been appointed regional vice president of sales and marketing, Europe, Africa, Mideast and South Asia. He will be responsible for sales and marketing in those regions, working closely with regional operations. Van de Weg was vice president of air logistics at KLM Cargo.
