October 7, 2019: Total Cargo Management (TCM) expert Robert Van de Weg has joined ECS Group as chief commercial officer (CCO).

“We’re no longer simply a GSSA. ECS Group represents the future of our industry – reinventing it and driving it forward,” said Robert Van de Weg. “Joining ECS Group means making a contribution to the revival of this industry, and it means putting in place a clear and ambitious strategy, supported by digital technology and Business Intelligence tools that can help our airline clients move forward. That’s why I accepted this position as CCO and it’s probably the most exciting challenge of my career,” said Weg.

Weg comes with skill and experience from having worked previously at KLM Cargo, Atlas Air, Cargolux and, most recently, as VP sales & marketing for Volga Dnepr Group, which includes AirBridgeCargo.

“We’re completely redefining the contours of what we do. We’ve created a robust set-up that’s built entirely around sales development, supported by an innovative digital strategy. This means that we’re capable of bringing new expertise and a business vision to the table that perfectly meet the needs expressed by airlines, and Robert is without a doubt the perfect contact for our clients,” said Adrien Thominet, ECS Group CEO.

Already a TCM expert, ECS Group is continuing its transformation with a total break from the traditional GSA model. Sales teams – who were already well equipped thanks to existing investment in the group’s digital transition – are trained and fully capable of bringing about this change.

“Robert Van de Weg is the ideal coach to help our teams reach new heights. With him at the helm of our commercial strategy, we can confidently say that we’re ready for this new chapter in ECS Group’s history,” added Thominet.
