Chapman Freeborn has appointed Allen Liu as cargo director of North Asia.

    With 15 years’ experience in aviation, Liu begun his career in 2006, gaining industry knowledge at several air cargo businesses before taking on a senior role as cargo manager China at Chapman Freeborn in 2013.

    After five years generating and developing business in the Chinese market for Chapman Freeborn Liu joined Air Bridge Cargo in 2018.

    However, the statement said that success of his time at Chapman Freeborn pulled him back, and Allen has now re-joined the company.

    Liu’s role is to develop the North Asian market, working to expand Chapman Freeborn’s presence in Japan and Korea, as well as in Hong Kong and China.

    He said: “We can see that North Asia has so much untapped potential and looking to the future when the pandemic is over there will be an increase in opportunities. I’m going to ensure that as well as seeing Chapman Freeborn has a strong presence here, our prospective and existing clients continue to receive a first-class service.  I will be developing strategic growth plans and putting them in place to support the increasing demand for cargo charters in North Asia. There is potential to really develop the business here. “

    Working closely with Neil Dursley, chief commercial officer and Reto Hunziker, group cargo director, the company says that Liu will play a “crucial role” in developing the cargo sales strategy.

    Chapman Freeborn CCO, Neil Dursley, added: “We are delighted to welcome Allen back to Chapman Freeborn, he will play a fundamental role in expanding our presence in North Asia. His expertise and knowledge in the product, and the industry will play a pivotal role in expanding the team and taking us to the next level.”
