Greg Schwendinger becomes president of American Airlines Cargo

American Airlines Cargo has appointed Greg Schwendinger to the role of President.

He succeeds Jessica Tyler, who left the role in May to move to another leadership role within the airline.

Schwendinger has more than 15 years of experience at American, and has held various roles leading teams across the airline. Most recently, Schwendinger led the finance team at AccentCare, a health care services provider, during a period of transformation and growth.

“Greg brings a unique perspective which will shape our cargo business and its growth potential. We are fortunate to regain his expertise and welcome him as he leads cargo toward greater success,” said Derek Kerr, vice chair, chief financial officer and president of American Eagle.

In his new role, Schwendinger will report directly to Kerr. Reporting to Schwendinger will be Roger Samways, vice president commercial; Sam Mendenhall, vice president operations; and Eric Mathieu, managing director, customer experience.
