IAG Cargo is strengthening its commercial leadership team with the appointment of a new Head of Sales.

The internal promotion sees Darren Peek appointed to the newly created role of Head of Sales, from his previous role as Regional Commercial Manager for Europe & Africa.

Peek has held many senior roles with IAG Cargo and British Airways and has over 25 years’ experience in the industry.

“I’m delighted to be stepping up to this role at IAG Cargo at such a pivotal stage in the business’s development," commented Peek. "As we restart many routes that were paused due to the pandemic and service customers in new markets, there continues to be significant opportunities for business growth. I’m looking forward to being instrumental in the next phase of IAG Cargo’s journey.”

John Cheetham, Chief Commercial Officer at IAG Cargo said: “Darren has made a positive contribution during his time at IAG Cargo. Boosting our team with the right calibre of people during this time will ensure that we maximise opportunities to deliver for our customers. As the trading environment develops at pace, we must remain creative and focused on customer solutions. Darren has demonstrated these attributes throughout his career.

“I am confident that his expertise will continue to drive IAG Cargo further through this challenging period and beyond.”
