British Airways chooses Americas VP

British Airways World Cargo has named Warren Tempest as its new commercial vice president for the Americas.

Tempest succeeds Ian Barrigan, who shifted to the airline's Middle East, South Asia and Australasia region.

Currently based in London as a global key account manager, Tempest has played an important role in building relationships with the airline's top customers, the airline said. He has also gained experience in the commercial, sales management and operational roles, including a period in Frankfurt as commercial manager for northern Europe.

The change takes effect March 1.
