Virgin Atlantic Cargo Appoints Dominic Kennedy as Managing Director

Virgin Atlantic Cargo has promoted Dominic Kennedy to the position of Managing Director.

The appointment follows changes in the airline’s senior management team that means David Geer, who was due to take up the post in mid-August, will now assume the role of Senior Vice President Revenue Management & Digital Distribution at Virgin Atlantic.

Phil Maher, Executive Vice President Operations at Virgin Atlantic, said, “As an airline we are extremely fortunate to have such a big talent pool and one of our biggest challenges is to always find the right opportunities to enable our best people to progress their careers with us. While I am confident David would have been a great asset to our cargo division, the sequence of events since this announcement has created another opportunity where his experience will be even more suited. This also means we are able to give Dominic this well-deserved promotion, knowing he brings a wealth of cargo knowledge and experience to the role having been a key member of our cargo leadership team since 2008.”

Dominic will take up the role of Managing Director of Virgin Atlantic Cargo on 14 August when John Lloyd, who has held the post since 2001, steps down after 30 years with the airline.

Dominic joined Virgin Atlantic in 2005 and began his career in the Fleet and Network Planning team before moving to Cargo in 2008. He has held a number of leadership positions in the Virgin Atlantic Cargo team over the last nine years and is currently Director, Commercial Planning.

Commenting on his promotion, Dominic said, “Having worked closely alongside John for the last nine years, I am extremely proud to have been given this great opportunity to lead our outstanding cargo team and to ensure that we continue to make a very significant contribution to the success of Virgin Atlantic. We will remain committed to putting our customers at the heart of everything we do in order to maintain their great support as we work as a team to take the business forward.”
