Denis Choumert, Chairman of the European Shippers’ Council (ESC), has been appointed to The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) Board of Directors.
Choumert has held high-level operational roles in engineering and project management, as well as procurement, transport and logistics with both the Technip and Italcementi Groups in a career spanning over two decades.
He was appointed ESC Chairman in 2012 and holds director level appointments on several other Transport Associations.
“As chairman of the ESC, which represents European Shippers’ interests but also works actively with Asian and American Shippers’ associations within the Global Shippers Alliance, I am honoured to be able to join TIACA’s Board,” said Choumert.
“Representing the end customers of the air freight industry, I am committed to working with all partners to make air freight more attractive to my constituents as well as more efficient, safer, and more environmentally friendly.”
Choumert joins the Board just three months after TIACA formed a Shippers’ Advisory Council, giving shippers from a cross-section of industries a forum to raise concerns and discuss challenges with all sectors of the air cargo community.
He is a graduate in Engineering of the Polytechnique School in Paris and also has an MBA from INSEAD Business School.
