Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has appointed Henrik Ambak to the position of Senior Vice President, Cargo Operations Worldwide.
Henrik, a Danish national, took up his new position in Dubai earlier this month. He joins Emirates SkyCargo after having spent the past 27 years in various roles in the air cargo industry, having worked for companies such as Novia, CSLux and Cargolux Airlines.
He started his career as a freight forwarder, and then moved into ground and cargo handling, before joining Cargolux to oversee cargo and ground handling, trucking, standards and procedures, network delivery, ground safety, ULD management, Customs and e-Business, as well as IT systems used by the commercial division.
In his new role, Henrik will be responsible for the management of all Emirates SkyCargo’s operations at its hub in Dubai, comprising the Cargo Mega Terminal at Dubai International Airport and Emirates SkyCentral at Dubai World Central, as well as the operations at the more than 140 outstations across the world.
“Henrik has vast experience in the air cargo industry and this will make him a great addition to our team. He joins us at an exciting time when we are experiencing good growth, particularly with the recent start of freighter operations at Emirates SkyCentral and the expansion of our current facilities at Dubai International. We look forward to him making a valuable contribution to our business,” said Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo.
“I am proud to be joining a market leader with a strong vision of growth for the future and I look forward to being a part of the Emirates SkyCargo team and contributing to its continued success,” said Henrik.
