Menzies Aviation Strengthens Team With New EVP & VP Cargo

Logistics company Menzies Aviation has welcomed two new members of staff to its team. Robert Fordree is the organization’s new Executive Vice President of Cargo and Chris Beale is re-joining the business as Vice President of Cargo-Europe.

Fordfree’s previous roles include Senior Vice President Commercial and Vice President of Cargo Development. Fordree was previously a board member of cargoiQ and is a current member of IATA’s Cargo Handling Consultative Council.

Beale initially joined the Menzies cargo business during its inception at London Heathrow, before moving to the US where he held various ground handling and cargo roles within the company.

He then moved to the Middle East where he held positions in Abu Dhabi and latterly in Italy for Etihad Airways before returning to the UK to take up a role with Worldwide Flight Services. Now, re-joining Menzies, Beale will drive operational excellence and support significant business growth across the region.
