FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, May 17, 2022, Ottawa, ON – In order to improve our service to all customers of Canadian North and to strengthen efforts in our Cargo business area, we are sharing today news of leadership changes within our Executive Team.
Matieu Plamondon has been appointed to a newly created position of Vice President, Cargo, Airport Operations & Facilities. Matieu brings to this role an extensive knowledge of our operations given prior roles with the company. His priority will be to strengthen our Cargo business and to ensure we are reliably delivering in this area on time, every time.
With this change, Matieu’s Charters & Business responsibilities will transition to Andrew Pope, Vice President, Customer & Commercial. This will consolidate our Scheduled and Charters businesses under one area and provide much tighter coordination between these two parts of our business. Andrew’s priority will be to ensure the continued stability and performance of both of these important areas.
While the effective date of this change will be Monday, May 30th, 2022, the teams have already begun to work together to ensure a smooth transition.
“Mat and Andrew are both strong leaders and I look forward to working with them and their teams to improve and strengthen our operations and provide the best possible service for our customers,” said Interim, President & CEO Rashwan Domloge.
