IATA has appointed Aleks Popovich as Senior Vice President for Industry Distribution and Financial Services, effective 1 October 2009. Popovich will replace Tom Murphy, who will retire from IATA after 30 years of service following a short transition period.

Popovich joined IATA in April 2005 as Global Head of Cargo. Prior to IATA, he was at British Airways where he headed both passenger and cargo network and revenue management functions.

 At IATA, Popovich revitalized the organization’s approach to cargo. He guided the IATA e-freight initiative to enable US$4.9 billion of cost savings in the cargo supply chain by converting paper-based processes to electronic documentation. By the end of 2010, e-freight will be live at 44 locations. Combined, these will give the industry the capability to handle 81% of international cargo with e-freight.

In his new role, Popovich will oversee all of IATA’s passenger and cargo activities, including IATA’s flagship Simplifying the Business program. This includes responsibility for IATA’s financial systems which combined handle US$350 billion in annual settlements. Until a successor is found, Aleks will also continue in his role as Global Head of Cargo.
