US ground handler Alliance Ground International (AGI) has appointed Roger Larreur as its chief commercial officer as part of its ongoing strategy to drive growth, sustainability, and resilience.
Prior to AGI, Larreur served as chief commercial officer, Americas for Swissport.
With over 30 years of experience in the sector, Larreur has managed accounts for some of the world’s largest airlines and airports for both cargo and passenger-related services, and he has worked across the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
“Roger has unparalleled credentials and is the perfect fit to drive our cargo handling, ground handling, mail handling, security services, and expansion into passenger services,” said Jared Azcuy, chief executive, AGI. “We have a clear growth strategy, which is ready for the next stage as we move out of the shadow of the global pandemic.”
AGI’s growth strategy has encompassed the expansion of its facilities at John F. Kennedy Airport, new ramp and warehouse operations at Pittsburgh International Airport, and the digitalisation of its entire handling processes at Chicago O’Hare Airport.
“AGI has made clear its intent to invest in its infrastructure and technology, and I look forward to being part of the team that will take this organisation to the next level,” said Larreur.
“There is enormous potential for growth in the sector, especially in North America, and I look forward to employing my experience to help ensure that AGI’s commitment to strategic investment, exceptional customer service, and innovation continues to be well-placed and duly-rewarded.”
AGI, along with sister companies Cargo Force and TCSC, is one of the largest groups of privately-owned cargo, mail, and freighter ground handling companies in the US.
