Etihad expands US commercial division

Etihad Airways announced on Thursday the expansion of its USA commercial team with the addition of three new sales roles in the airline’s New York City and Los Angeles offices. The growth of the USA sales force reflects the growing importance of the market for the Abu Dhabi-based carrier.

Etihad Airways currently operates daily flights to New York and Chicago and will launch daily flights to Washington, DC in March 2013.

The new appointments are: Ron Glickman as key account manager, corporate sales; Carlos Guzman as key account manager, Travel Management Company (TMC) Sales; and Pablo Alberti as account manager, sales. Geert Boven, Etihad Airways senior vice-president Americas, said: “We are excited to welcome Ron, Carlos and Pablo to our sales team. The USA is an expansive market, so as we grow our presence, it is vital that we also build our team to reflect the evolving needs of the region. I am confident that the collective experience and skills of these new additions will better position Etihad Airways for continued success here.”
