Wraight joins Cargoitalia as chairman
Stan Wraight has taken over the role of chairman of Cargoitalia, a young Milan-based all-cargo airline, effective Sept. 1, after resigning as head of AirBridgeCargo, part of Russia’s Volga-Dnepr Group.
Privately owned Cargoitalia started operations in June 2006 and now has a scheduled network based on 16 gateways in North and Central America, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia.
Wraight is replacing Ronni Benatoff, who acted as chairman during the launching phase of the company.
“I am very impressed with how far Massimo (Massimo Panagia, Cargoitalia’s chief executive officer and managing director) has brought Cargoitalia, the team he has built and the infrastructure that is in place. It is truly a customer focused company,” Wraight said. “We will be talking with various potential strategic partners in the coming months to ensure the targets we have set for ourselves and the commitments we are making to our clients are fulfilled.”
