Exec leaves Cargolux after two-month stint

By Staff Reports on May 22, 2014

Cargolux Airlines International and Robert Song mutually agreed to terminate his role as a senior vice president, head of Asia and Pacific with immediate effect – after Song was on the job for two months.

Both parties are in discussions about “a mutually satisfactory consultancy agreement” to support the realization of the dual hub strategy between Cargolux and its shareholder Henan Civil Aviation and Investment Co. (HNCA), the airline announced Thursday.

"Thanks to his in-depth knowledge of the business and his strong relationships throughout the airfreight industry, Robert has played a central role in the successful setting up of the alliance between Cargolux and HNCA,” Dirk Reich, president and CEO, said. “I thank Robert for his contributions, his drive and hard work.”

Cargolux promoted Kevin Shek to vice president Asia and Pacific, effective immediately. Shek, who is presently heading the airline’s sales activities in the Asia and Pacific region, has held various positions since joining Cargolux in 1997.

Prior to starting at Cargolux on March 26, Song held senior management positions with Air New Zealand Cargo and AirBridgeCargo Airlines. Most recently, he was senior adviser to HNCA.
