Regional structure is streamlined and a managing director is named.

 
   Effective Jan. 1, Swissport International AG will consolidate its existing regional structure from nine to three management regions: EMEA, Americas and APAC.
Swissport said the new structure will reduce overhead across the organization and support faster decision-making.
The new EMEA region — Europe, the Middle East and Africa — will be managed by Luzius Wirth, currently executive vice president of the U.K. and Ireland and a member of group executive management.
   Glenn Rutherford, presently in charge of Swissport in Australia and New Zealand, will be heading up APAC — the greater Asia-Pacific region.
   Joe Phelan, currently group chief operating officer, temporarily will head the Americas region — the United States, Canada and Latin America — until a permanent internal or external candidate is appointed.
   Simon Messner, currently senior vice president for Europe, will assume the role of executive vice president of performance and innovation at the group executive level.
   The regional heads will replace the chief operating officer at the group level. The responsibilities of the chief commercial officer largely will move to the regional level for closer client relationships and market proximity, according to Swissport, which said the new performance and innovation role will ensure that commercial governance is managed consistently at group level.

   Swissport said the new structure is part of a scheduled succession plan. Joe Phelan, group chief operating officer, and Nils Pries Knudsen, group chief commercial officer, will retire in the first half of 2019. All other managers at the group executive level will remain in their current roles.   
   
   Anthony Perea has been appointed managing director of the Liberian Corporate Registry.
   Perea previously was the managing director at AMICORP. He has nearly 25 years of experience in business development and operations in the financial and corporate services sector.

   “Anthony’s main objectives will be to help explore new markets — and possibly new services — for our corporate registry division,” said Scott Bergeron, CEO of the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry. “He will also help in our continued development of value-added relationships with the maritime legal and finance communities, while better engaging Liberia in various corporate industry forums, including The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.”

The slowdown in the manufacturing sector with the ongoing softening in trade sentiment point to the likelihood of continued weakness in air cargo markets in the coming months. 

While UP, CSX and KCS have already reported their Q1 2019 results, CP will report its results on April 23, followed by Norfolk Southern on April 24 and CN on April 29.
