Anne Marie van Hemert, Schiphol Airport’s Director Aviation Business Development and, as such, also responsible for cargo, will leave the company this FEB23. Air Cargo Netherlands was taken by surprise but hopes that a successor will bring back visibility for the airport’s cargo business.
Ms. van Hemert’s departure was made public by the Dutch transport paper, Nieuwsblad Transport. It quotes unnamed sources at the airport describing the operation as a ‘clear out’, initiated by the new CEO, Ruud Sontag. The sacking of Sjoerd Blüm, the group’s Chief Information Officer, preceded Ms. van Hemert’s by just a few days.
