Delta Cargo has appointed Gonzalo Hernandez as General Manager of Cargo sales for Asia Pacific. He started his new role on July 1, 2020 in which he will manage the cargo sales functions for Japan, Korea, and throughout Southeast Asia, including the cargo business for Delta’s joint venture (JV) partnership with Korean Air.
Hernandez replaces Eric Anderson, who has returned to Atlanta to take up the position of Director of cargo strategy, alliances, and technology. He will be responsible for leading the commercial strategy for cargo, including alliances, marketing, and communications, product development, and digital transformation.
For the past three years Hernandez has been based in Amsterdam, from where he managed cargo sales for EMEAI. During his time, the region saw sales growth of 33 percent. He joined Delta Cargo in 2009, following Delta’s merger with Northwest Airlines, and has held a number of roles of increasing responsibility since his first position within the Latin America and Caribbean cargo revenue management entity where he managed the region’s pricing and inventory.
