Hall of Fame opens for nominations

TIACA is now accepting nominations for its Hall of Fame, which recognises individuals who have made a huge difference to the global air cargo community.

The winning candidate will be celebrated at a gala event at the Association’s forthcoming Executive Summit in fall 2019, joining a long list of industry stalwarts and airfreight dignitaries from around the world.

“Since launching our Hall of Fame in 1997 we have recognized dozens of professionals who have played a key role in the progress of aviation and helped to shape the industry as it is today,” said Vladimir Zubkov, Secretary General, TIACA.

“We encourage our members, as well as organizations and the press to put forward individuals they believe are deserving for consideration of this accolade.”

Inductees into the Hall of Fame are chosen by TIACA’s Chairman’s Council, which includes all past Chairmen and the association’s current Chairman.

Last year, Chris Leach, who founded global charter company Air Charter Service Ltd more than 30 years ago and oversaw its development into a multinational business, was inducted into the Hall of Fame at the 2018 Air Cargo Forum in Toronto, Canada.

Other past winners of the annual event include Desmond Vertannes, an acknowledged air cargo leader known for initiating change and innovating; and James ‘Jim’ Jackson, a driving force behind the standardization of Aircraft Unit Load Devices (ULD).
