Doug Brittin, secretary general of the International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) since 2013, has advised the Board of Directors that he will retire at the end of this year. A selection committee, under the direction of TIACA vice-chairman Sebastiaan Scholte of Jan de Rijk Logistics has been established and has commenced the process to review and recruit candidates.
Brittin will stay with TIACA in an advisory capacity once the new secretary general has been appointed to ensure a smooth transition and to continue to support the TIACA Board.
“TIACA is the only association representing the entire air cargo community and the role of secretary general is a vital one,” said Brittin. “I continue to be dedicated to attaining our goals on behalf of all segments of our industry, and am looking forward to a great ACF in Paris in October.”
TIACA chairman Sanjiv Edward expressed his appreciation for the fine work Doug has accomplished, and voiced his pleasure that he would be staying on in an advisory role to support the new secretary general.
“It is business as usual in the meantime and we are looking forward at the moment to an exciting ACF in October,” he said. TIACA’s ACF takes place this year in Paris from the 26-28 October.
