American Airlines Cargo has appointed experienced industry professional Clément Fau, as its new Country Sales Manager for France. Based at the airline’s French headquarters at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG), he will lead the carrier’s sales team activities across the country and report to Emma Oliver, Sales Director for EMEA & APAC.
Fau brings almost two decades of experience in the airline and cargo industry to his new role at the world’s largest airline. He previously worked for Air France KLM Martinair Cargo where he most recently served as Key Accounts and Pharma Sales Manager. Prior to that role, Fau was a sales manager for four years and supported the customer service team based in Lyon.
“We are delighted to have such an experienced individual as Clément join our team to drive forward our already exceptional operation in France. His knowledge and expertise of moving pharma products by air will be invaluable as we expand and grow our range of specialist vertical products,” says Oliver.
CDG is an important hub for American’s cargo activities in Europe, supporting both local and trucked freight from neighboring regions. The carrier recently exported more than 160 tonnes of fresh flowers from CDG to the U.S. for the Valentine’s Day holiday.
