Celine Hourcade, TIACA

Celine is TIACA’s Transition Director since May 2020. As such, she is leading the Association during its transformation journey and until the future Director General is appointed.

Celine has founded Change Horizon in September 2019, a consulting company, to support aviation & logistics organizations with their long term strategy definition, and their digital transformation, innovation, sustainability and advocacy projects. As such Celine started supporting TIACA with its Sustainability program since September 2019 and then its Transformation project since December 2019.

Prior to founding Change Horizon, Celine was driving the IATA Cargo Transformation and Innovation portfolio and team, in response to the evolving needs of airlines, their customers and partners and taking into account the business environment, the regulatory landscape and IATA imperatives. It included projects such as Air Cargo Carbon Footprint, ONE Record, Smart Facility, Interactive Cargo, Modern Cargo Distribution and “Drones for tomorrow’s air cargo”.

Learning & development is another area of interest for Celine: from diversity and inclusion matters, to coaching and mentoring younger colleagues. Celine has initiated the IATA Future Air Cargo Executives (FACE) program to attract, retain and develop talent in the air cargo industry.

Celine is a French citizen, married and mother of 2.
