Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Inc. on Tuesday announced the appointment of Scott Dolan as senior vice president and chief operating officer.

Dolan, who had served as vice president of operations for the company's Polar Air Cargo Inc. subsidiary, will be responsible for day-to-day operations at both Atlas Air Inc. and Polar Air Cargo effective today.

"Scott's leadership and in-depth knowledge of our operations, his expertise in best practices, and his business acumen will ensure that we have the proper resources and processes in place to continue to meet the demands of our customers and operate safely and efficiently," said Jeff Erickson, president of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings.

Prior to joining Polar, Dolan held various positions at General Electric's lighting and GE Capital Aviation Services businesses.
