ECS Group has appointed CEO Adrien Thominet as executive chairman.
He took over the role from Bertrand Schmoll on 1 August 2021.
Thominet has been with ECS Group for more than 25 years, becoming COO in 2011 and then CEO in 2017.
“I am honoured to have been appointed executive chairman,” said Thominet. “Today, more than ever, the air cargo industry is at a crossroads, and our ambition as the leading worldwide GSSA, is to provide the optimum support to our customers in this changing environment.
“We are therefore committed to continuously improving and developing innovative, sustainable, high value-added solutions and services to best serve them.”
Thominet revealed that ECS Group would launch its ‘Augmented GSA’ concept in the coming weeks, the result of a “revised commercial direction”, “enhanced product offering” and increased focus on sustainability.
